Terminal questions
« on: August 17, 2022, 07:11:06 pm »
Is there a way to specify other than MS Windows terminal (e.g. git scm)...?

Is there a way to specify different colors (background, foreground) for each tab...?

Is there a way to rename each tab...?

Thanks.

You can try setting the macro variable def_ntshell (Macro>Set Macro Variable...). Not all shells will run properly as a terminal in SlickEdit. It's easy to write one that does work as long as you read from stdin and write to stdout and flush output. Note that all Terminals including the Build window use this setting (def_ntshell -- defaults to COMSPEC envvar).

There isn't a way to specify different colors for a terminal tab or rename a terminal tab. These could be useful especially if auto restore could save/restore these settings.
