SecureCRT multiple fonts on different tabs

I've changed a font for only one session.
If I launch this session, the font is working well (font X). If I open other session (with font Y) on tabs in the same window, the font Y is not applying but the font X is.

Hi Rian,

Correct, this is the designed behavior and you should have seen a dialog informing you of the "first tab dictates font and geometry" behavior the first time you opened multiple tabs (as shown in the attachment).

I have added this thread to a feature request in our product enhancement database for the ability to maintain independent row, column, font in tabs. Should a future release of SecureCRT include this feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct email notification, send an email to and include "Feature Request - Forum Thread #13081" in the subject line or use this form from the support page of our website.

You are right, I got this message long time ago but I've hide it so I didn't remember.

Hi Rian,

Yes, that happens to a lot of us. :)

Hi Rian,

Some time ago you expressed interest in having the ability to maintain the font specific to each session when launching sessions in tabs in SecureCRT.

We have recently implemented this functionality in SecureCRT 9.0 beta 1 (for Windows). Prior to this release, the first session opened would dictate the font/character encoding/zoom level for any subsequent sessions launched in tabs.

Should you wish to test out the new behavior, please refer to the following link to download SecureCRT 9.0 beta 1:
We would be happy to hear any feedback regarding how well (or not) the newer behavior meets your needs! Please send an email to with any questions or concerns that you may have about 9.0 beta 1!
