Page Up/Page Down behaviour

 
I've tried using the key mapping feature so that I could re-define the behaviour for the page up/page down keys. I wanted to make them scroll the terminal window instead of acting in the same manner as the "up" key (repeating the last commands).

So basically what I did was -
Custom Key Mapping > Key combination Page Up > Action - Scroll Page Up
Custom Key Mapping > Key combination Page Down > Action - Scroll Page Down

That didn't work. I've tried clearing all other custom maps to no avail.

Am I doing something wrong? I would very much like to be able to scroll the terminal by directly pressing Page Up or Page Down.

I'm using Xshell 4, build 0131. Thanks in advance.

Re: Page Up/Page Down behaviour

 
By default, Xshell send PG up and PG Down key input to remote server. In order to use the scroll up and scroll down, you should use the SHIFT+PG Up / SHIFT+PG Down shortcuts.

If the problem persists, can you send us the following information?

1. what is the keyboard shortcut you used?

2. What happens when you do Shift + Pg up / Shift + Pg down?

3. What is your Windows language and keyboard settings (IME mode)?

Re: Page Up/Page Down behaviour

 
1. what is the keyboard shortcut you used?
I used Page Up/Page Down directly.

2. What happens when you do Shift + Pg up / Shift + Pg down?
It works as expected, scrolling the pages.

3. What is your Windows language and keyboard settings (IME mode)?
English / EN-US, but then again it doesn't matter which layout I use (I tried a few other ones.)

However, my question is - can you disable the sending of this input to the remote server? I can't think of any reason I would want to do such. Other applications such as SecureCRT allow you to scroll using Page Up directly.

Thanks in advance
