Octave GUI problem

Ian McCallion
Can anyone help? When using octave-gui.exe the command window cannot
be scrolled up so that the flashing cursor goes below the bottom of
the window.

This a a new behaviour since the latest windows 10 update and occurs
on at least 5 octave versions since 3.8.2.

If this is the wrong list for this sort of question I apologise and
would appreciate a pointer the the right list.

Cheers... Ian

I can't help you, but I can confirm that I've seen the same behavior at
least a couple times; if I see it again I'll pay closer attention and
see if I can figure out the circumstances that trigger it.  (I use
octave on both Windows and Linux (mostly Ubuntu), and can't remember
exactly where or how often I've seen your problem.)

Probably not related, but in a similar vein, I've had cases where, if I
drag the octave window to a secondary monitor, the command window only
shows the leftmost 40 characters or so.  Text wraps to the next line as
if it were filling the window, but a bit more than the right half of the
window just remains white, so I can't read a lot of the output.  I'll
try to pay more attention if I encounter this behavior again as well,
unless it's a known problem.

When I try to scroll back to see the early values the screen will not scroll back.  Scrolling works with the command line interface.
