First you hit add new (entry), then type your text in the bottom grid, then hit update, then hit save (to save it so you’ll see it in game log)...
But it’s explained in Cmdr.

So, when do you do this? During or after a patrol?

Only after patrol back in bunker.
You Can’t see your current patrol when still at sea...

You can add as many new entries as you want. They are in blue color when hitting add new.
You can edit also the normal kills entries.
If you don’t hit save button, they will not show ingame log
They are showing also in Cmdr personal files (via browser)...just click the patrol number

Default Pattuglia E.Morgersen 20 ottobre 1940.

Afraid of getting too close to the Irish coast, I decided to attack, despite the very rough sea. I hit a merchant ship and I jumped to a depth of 69 metres and started to escape. Unfortunately I was damaged, but it was nothing serious, and we reached a depth of 160 metres. The two escort corvettes were not very skilful and after a while they gave up and moved away. With only two torpedoes I returned to the base of St.Nazaire. During our return we sank a freighter, neutral or friend I don't know why the darkness prevented me from seeing the flag, but the course it had was definitely towards England. The sinking was not credited to us. As soon as we are ready we will leave for the South Atlantic.

"They are showing also in Cmdr personal files (via browser)...just click the patrol number" => Yes, that's the way I always do it.

But how do you do it, that it shows up like the pic you posted here? Which game save do I load do be able to see it in the onboard KTB (keystroke "k")?
