scratchpad font super tiny

Is there a way to adjust the font size on the scratchpad? or is this a bug? see attachment... on a 1080p monitor.

I've also noticed that the rows/columns information in the status bar doesn't change when typing in the scratchpad. Not sure if by design or not.

Hi cawfehman,

Presently scratchpad is going to use the font family/size configured in Default session (Options menu -> Edit Default Session). After making a change in the Terminal / Appearance category of Default session, you would likely have to close and reopen the scratchpad file. That was the case in my tests.

I have added this thread to the following feature requests in our product enhancement database:
  • Add the ability to create and save scratchpad template(s) for font/background color (independent of Default Session settings)
  • Show the number of selected lines (and rows/columns) in the status bar for scratchpad tabs
Should a future release of SecureCRT include either feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct email notification, send an email to support@vandyke.com and include "Feature Request - Forum Thread #14436" in the subject line or use this form from the support page of our website.

The ability to change the font 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.
