I've used Bray's for many years, no problem.  But I visited a friend & had him download it on his laptop to show off some software....but the screen would not scroll, once it was filled the text went off the bottom, making the output impossible to see.  Each separate line displays perfectly fine with the usual cr/lf.  But the lines just disappeared off the screen bottom.   You could grab the vertical scroll/drag bar, but would have to do so non-stop.  We saw a checkbox for

- auto scroll checkbox - to prevent auto scrolling, but it had no effect.

 

He was running Windows 8.1 ...a few weeks later I visited someone else who had Bray's running on win 10 & the same problem.  I'm running win 7 & a 2010 bray's.  Has anyone else had this trouble?...seem like the new checkbox form around 2013 is no (or no longer) working.

I've noticed that some terminal apps (including mine, at one point), would not scroll if the thumb in the vertical scroll bar was not at the bottom of the window.

I tried many adjustments...scrolling does NOT work in win10 (& I believe, nor win 8.1)..the text falls off the bottom of the screen...If anyone knows of a fix/setting, please post.  The autoscroll selection has no effect

 

This link has an older version of the terminal, which scrolls like a champ  (but no check box to turn scrolling on/off):

Yep! I've noticed this also but in Win7 64-bit. The fonts are incorrect as well being too large for their fields.

Interesting, though you can select a smaller font that should work (there is a font size selector).

 

Too bad the autoscroll checkbox apparently doesn't work in some versions of Bray's

Didn't the author come on here to report that "Brays" was replaced with something else a few years back?

 

When I access:

 

https://sites.google.com/site/br...

 

I just get a redirect to:

 

https://sites.google.com/site/te...

 

The news on that page mentions a release in 2014 - so is that the version everyone is talking about here?

Yes version  (https://sites.google.com/site/te...) fails to scroll "properly"...earlier ones might as well, but v1.9b scrolls fine with windows 7....windows10

There were 4 or 5 versions in between, not sure which version initiated the scrolling issue.

 

My original post was to ask if there was some setting/fix  (hidden or otherwise)  to make the most recent version's text  scroll up (so the newest xx lines appear at the screen bottom)

If you click the [Donate] button on that page the email address PayPal will send the money to is   so I'd contact the author and ask about Win8+

 

EDIT: email graphic

If you go to the Brays terminal site:

 

https://sites.google.com/site/braypp/terminal

 

It redirects you to:

 

https://sites.google.com/site/braypp/terminal

https://sites.google.com/site/te...

 

so it seems it has changed name. Perhaps the later version does not have the issue?

 

If that doesn't fix it contact the author and report the bug.

 

edit: corrected url. Ross
