Shift-F4 Timer Won't Go Away

ACT 2010 ver Hotfix 3


A client calls and I routinely hit Shift-F4 to bring up the Timer.  I click on the"Play" button and the Timer starts.  I then click "Stop", up pops the Record History dialog and the Timer disappears.  I record the phone call and click OK.  The Record History dialog disappears and the Timer pops back up on my screen.

Is there a preference item which makes the Timer persistant (that I can deselect)?

Try going to Tools/Preferences, click Dialer Preferences under the Communication tab, and then unchecking the box for "Hide dialer after dialing". This should keep it on the screen.
