Horizontal scrollbar not showing/ need to show 1000 columns


I'm running secureCRT Version 8.5.4 (build 1942).
I enabled both scrollbars, horizontal and vertical. I also setup the logical columns to 1000 on one of my connections and 5000 in the global settings.

I did this with the hope of having the horizontal scrollbar would allow me to see more output on the right side of the screen, and no matter what i do the horizontal scrollbar doesn't show also, see screenshot1.

So far the maximum number of columns i'm able to get is 247, see screenshoot. how can i make securecrt to show 1000 columns?

Hi gsirvas,

The On resize configuration in the Terminal / Emulation category is Synchronize view to size.

What are the results if you enable Retain size and font?

See this post, which explains why that is the correct configuration for what you are trying to accomplish.
