Re: reset command in linux clears all history

 
Hi Alex,

The Reset command removes the data of the current teminal area as well as all the data in the scrollback buffer. With the "Pushed erased screen into Scroll Buffer" option enabled, the scrollback data will NOT be erased even if the reset command is inputted.

We will consider changing the behavior of the reset command for future releases. Thank you!
