keyChar Values 281-283 Send Incorrect Character
December 27th, 2012

When creating a keyboard layout for any TinyTERM ITX product, keyChar values 281-283 no longer represent the numbers 0-2 on the numeric keypad. Instead they produce the letters v, s and t respectively. The correct keyChar values for the numeric keypad are:

AirPrint Transparent Print Uses Extra Pages
December 27th, 2012

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.

Ctrl-J Sent to Host as Ctrl-M
December 27th, 2012

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.

Text Zooms After Scan
December 27th, 2012

In TinyTERM Pro for iPhone, use the keyboard scan key to scan a bar codeĀ  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.

Double-Height Characters Drawn in Wrong Position
December 27th, 2012

When using VT-series emulations on the new iPad (3rd or 4th generation) double-height characters are drawn in the wrong position. This does not affect the original iPad, iPad 2, iPhone or iPod Touch.

Siri Integration
December 27th, 2012

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

Clear Screen Capability on iOS
December 26th, 2012

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.

keyHeight Should Not Be Used at Beginning of Row
December 26th, 2012

All TinyTERM for iOS products support the creation of custom keyboard layouts. When creating a custom layout, the keyboard key at the beginning of a row sets the default height value for the entire row. As such, using the keyHeight argument in the definition of the first key in a row changes the height for all subsequent keys. This causes display problems with the keyboard: either rows that are too short, or blank rows next to keys that are supposed to overlap the next row instead.

The workaround is to insert a thin blank key of standard height at the beginning of the row:

Windows 8 Compatibility
November 12th, 2012
TinyTERM versions 4.61 (July 2009) and higher are fully supported on Windows 8. However, TinyTERM must run in the Desktop interface. It is not enabled for the Metro interface at this time.
Q: What about Windows RT, like on the Microsoft Surface tablet?
A: Right now TinyTERM does not run on Windows RT. We will be producing a version of TinyTERM for RT in the near future.

TinyTERM versions 4.8.0 (February 2013) and higher are fully supported on Windows 8. However, TinyTERM must run in the Desktop interface. It is not enabled for the Metro interface at this writing.

TinyTERM does not currently run on Windows RT. The CPUs used for the RT platform do not support instruction sets required by TinyTERM for Windows.
