    Often I sit waiting for a task to complete in a TCC window, then get suspious that it is paused. I click and hit space. Sometimes off it goes. Sometimes nothing happens. Did I just pause it or unpause it?

    I would like it if there were some visual indicator if a window is paused. I asked for some help with this problem some time ago and was told this is Window's domain and there is nothing can be done to fix it. I have written scrolling log windows in Java. It was not that difficult. Perhaps if TCC took over that function, it could add additonal functionality, such as a pause indicator and optional slow scroll.

    You could also implement a UTF-8 console that could display the most of the Unicode glyph set. The IBM-OEM is a bit dated.

    What's pausing? Tasks of all kinds generally don't pause when they're not
    expected to. If an EXE running in the same console as TCC decides unilaterally
    to pause, I doubt TCC is capable of even knowing about it. The only other ways
    I know of pausing a console or what's running in it are ones the user should
    know about (PAUSE, DELAY, PRIORITY /S, left-click with QuickEdit on). I don't
    really understand what you're asking.
