SSH retina fonts

SSH retina fonts

Postby johnnycash » Wed Apr 25, 2012 11:31 am


My request is quite simple - retina quality fonts in ssh terminal. Why this feature wasn't introduced in the previous "iPad 3 retina support" update?

I also noticed that the "play" (triangle) button in the Session List menu isn't optimized for new ipad retina display.

The font is actually vectorized (so it can scale to any resolution) but rendered based on the selected font size in the session editor to the screen.
For it to look better on retina devices, try increasing the font size in the session editor.
For the next release, I'm taking this case into consideration.

Hi Raf!
I bought remoter ssh and am a bit confused about how to set the right settings for full screen ssh terminal display. with 'auto' when I make it set to fullscreen the whole screen blows out and with two finger gesture it does not squeeze down to the aspect ratio that i want. then i tried setting custom screen sizes and different fonts. However, I am unable to get a full screen terminal that i don't have to slide around with my finger. I need to open vi a lot and need a good resolution and maybe sharp font'-ed' full screen. I have a bluetooth keyboard, so I plan to make use of the screen real estate to the max. please help, i have been at it all day and haven't got ssh set up. Am I doing something wrong? It is just the basic requirement that I need. How can I make the full screen terminal fit the entire ipad display?
