When using AirPrint for a transparent print job, a full 80-character line that ends in a carriage return/line feed pair (CRLF) is counted as two lines, even though it prints as one. This throws off the page length counter, causing the print job to feed a new page before it’s needed.
TinyTERM ITX 2 and TinyTERM Pro for iOS both convert all Ctrl-J characters (ASCII 10) sent from the on-screen keyboard to Ctrl-M (ASCII 13) before sending them to the host. This change was made deliberately for customers who prefer the standard iPad keyboard. However, there is no way to revert this behavior if the ^J character is needed.
In TinyTERM Pro for iPhone, use the keyboard scan key to scan a bar code in landscape mode. On returning to TinyTERM Pro, the text size is at maximum. This happens with any other function that resets the keyboard and display also.

No TinyTERM ITX product currently uses Siri for text dictation. Siri is very good at interpreting natural language. However, a typical shell prompt does not accept standard text. Adding Siri support to TinyTERM will require the ability to parse commands along these lines:
ls -lR | grep .obj | more

No TinyTERM ITX product has a user-driven clear screen capability at present. The host system must clear the screen. Century Software has received a request to add an option to clear the screen on demand.

TinyTERM Pro for iPhone includes the capability to print the screen or send transparent print jobs to email. When this is done on iOS 6, any custom keyboard selected in TinyTERM Pro is ignored. Instead, the standard iPhone keyboard displays no matter what keyboard changes are made. Closing and restarting TinyTERM Pro is the only way to fix the display. This does not affect iPads running iOS 6, only iPhones and iPod Touch devices.

TinyTERM products for iPad and iPhone sometimes leave single off-color pixels on the screen in seemingly random places. These are actually pieces of individual characters that were not erased correctly.
