  1. Incorrect character width detection on Unicode chars

    The new version's cursor is in a mess when there is Unicode char in the line.

      • Windows app is lacking all the advertised features but SSH.

        Telnet, SFTP etc is all missing. I feel misinformed by the website and would like to know when i can expect these features in the desktop app.

          • Need to be able to enter password to standard SSH prompt instead of a separate pop-up dialog

            It would be nice to have an option to be able to enter user name and (most importantly) password directly to the SSH prompt instead of to a separate Desktop App pop-up dialog.

              • Allow for custom keyboard shortcuts in settings

                In OSX terminal I've gotten extremely used to clearing the screen with shortcuts like cmd-K and cmd-L. I know this might not be the same for all desktop users, but a simple keyboard shortcut customization panel would be the ideal global solution here. Not being able to customize settings like this makes the switch between terminal clients too jarring for power users.

                  • connect via

                    add an option to use an intermediate host to connect to the wanted destination host.
                    this is needed for example if you need to connect via a "jumphost" which is accessible, but destination host is in a secured zone.

                      • Middle mouse button copy & paste problem

                        When I use the Terminal on Ubuntu, usually press the middle button of mouse to copy and paste the text has selected.
                        When I use on the chrome app and Desktop version(emmm almost one thing),the text will copy & paste right, but also enable the scroll screen(sorry I don't know how to talk about this ).

                        So , I want you can disable the feature about press middle button of mouse can scroll the screen(useless), only keep copy & paste on.
                        Thanks.

                        • group connect / execute snippet

                          i wnat to connect to all hosts of a group.
                          and i run a snippet on all that connected hosts.

                          so it would be nice if we can execute a snippet on a group and it connects to all those hosts.

                            some commands you would like to automate via snippets require the use of control commands such as CTRL + z. We need the ability to add these commands to our snippets!

                              • Save more Information to each Connection

                                Hello.

                                Your APP is nice.

                                It would be good if the user could more information to each connection, like:

                                Latest Update: DATE
                                Operating System:
                                Notice:
                                etc.

                                This would be really helpful!

                                Thanks.

                                      It seems not possible to launch multiple instances of the desktop app.
                                      It would be nice to use space on multi screen setups.

                                      • Improve copy/paste in winddows...

                                        Copy/paste with middle mouse button is not usefull. Any type of rigth click menu is simple and usefull.
