Feature Request -- SecureCRT Linux
 
Hi all,
I use securecrt for both a Windows Desktop as well as a Linux desktop (manjaro on both XFCE and KDE). On the windows system I've been using the Beta 9.0 and the inclusion of the RDP and scratchpad are great. Just wondering if the following features could be looked at being included.

RDP:
For the linux release of SecureCRT inclusion of both RDP and VNC clients for desktop remote access

Scratchpad:
make the scratchpad themeable -- sorry but for myself the bright white is a bit blinding.
make the scratchpad dockable item similar to the command manager and session manager currently are in the windows release

Missing features on the linux release:
incorporate the command manager into the Linux release and have it dockable
allow the button bar to be dockable (unless I'm missing something as would prefer the button bar above the chat/command window as I'm able to do in the windows system)

log update feature:
on the SSH/terminal sessions if connected to a terminal server when connecting to a second system, the option for the log-filename to be updated to reflect this. (this is more wishful thinking)

I have added this thread to a feature request in our product enhancement database for RDP support for macOS/Linux. Should a future release of SecureCRT include this feature, notification will be posted here.

I have added this thread to a feature request in our product enhancement database to add the ability to change the background color of scratchpad. Should a future release of SecureCRT include this feature, notification will be posted here.

For the second request, do you mean a "session manager-like window" to manage scratchpad tabs? Or do you want the area where you enter commands/notes to be dockable instead of a tab?

This is available in a v9.0 pre-release. Even though the beta release cycle has started, macOS/Linux versions have been omitted because the developers are still working on some features. Use the contact info below if you want to try the pre-release build. Please include the email address associated with your download account.

I agree the positioning should probably be the same across all platforms. I've asked the developers to investigate.

This one I do not understand. Please elaborate.

The ability to set the foreground and background colors for the scratchpad has been added to a pre-beta version of SecureCRT.

If you would like to try it, please email me at Maureen.Jett@vandyke.com.
