A few issues


I'm evaluating Xshell as a replacement for Attachmate Reflection. During the early tests I found a series of little annoying issues on which I would like to have your thoughts :

1) The terminal is only using bold. I have tried several emulations and color schemes, but it uses exclusively the bold characters. In other terms, the command : echo "\033[0mNOTBOLD\033[1mBOLD" results in a single bold text. This has been mentionned in Post #239 already. See attached picture also for a comparison with Reflection.

2) I cannot use the tilde ~ sign. It exits to the XShell prompt. This is reported in posts #220 and #238 except that I have a Swiss keyboard, not Turkish. By the way, the Ctrl-Alt-] does not produce anything at all for me.

3) Is there a way to map the Ctrl key to something ? I use Ctrl-Arrows in editors and shells but can't make it do anything at all. Actually, is there a list somewhere of ALL the keycodes that one can use in a Keyboard Mapping file ? This way we could create our own keyboard/codes the way we want.

4) Is there a way to change the path to the Session Folder ? The idea is to be able to have shared .xsh files on a shared folder so that everyone has same settings.

Thank you very much.

Change the path of Session Folder is a good idea!
