Hi cawfehman,

Presently scratchpad is going to use the font family/size configured in Default session (Options menu -> Edit Default Session). After making a change in the Terminal / Appearance category of Default session, you would likely have to close and reopen the scratchpad file. That was the case in my tests.

I have added this thread to the following feature requests in our product enhancement database:
  • Add the ability to create and save scratchpad template(s) for font/background color (independent of Default Session settings)
  • Show the number of selected lines (and rows/columns) in the status bar for scratchpad tabs
Should a future release of SecureCRT include either feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct email notification, send an email to and include "Feature Request - Forum Thread #14436" in the subject line or use this form from the support page of our website.
