Incorrect display under TCMD 13

Sep 27, 2009

I find TCMD does not display well on my Win 7 x64 since 11.0 and I have reported before. I download the latest version 13.00.21 x64 but same problem again.

I attached the screen capture for your info. You can see the TCMD think there are 106 columns but actually around 107 columns (by counting on the JPG).

If the tab is detached, the display is good. So the problem occurs only under TCMD.

I think this might be due to Console code page. Below is my PC configuration:
Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (6.1.7601) x64
System Locale = HKSARG (i.e. Hong Kong)
Console Code page = 950

When I switch to 437 by CHCP, the display is good.

Best Regards,

If you detach the tab with the garbled display, does it still look garbled?

Does the problem still occur if you set the tab width to some nice multiple of twenty -- say, 80 or 100 columns?
