    Anyone get the issue with backspace/delete not always being what you want them to be in Syncterm?

    With a recent compile of it in Linux, it usually follows the 'stty erase' setting from the shell, except in other screen modes like Atari. When in Atari mode, I always have to ^H to backspace. When screen mode is just set to "current", and I run syncterm from a default shell, I get ^? for backspace on the PC boards.. if I "stty erase ^H" first, then it will give me ^H for backspace on those. With Atari, it's the same no matter what. Pretty sure the same goes for Commodore but I will have to check again.

    It'd be cool if there was a setting for this, and maybe there is but I overlooked it.

    Oh, I forgot to mention that I don't have this issue when I build it on Mac.

    I think you might have answered this a while back, but I thought there was an issue in SyncTerm with flashing ansi and I realized it's only when I'm running Syncrhonet doors. If I'm on another system SyncTerm shows flashing ansi just fine. I think it might have to do with creating issues or something but can't remember.

    If "high intensity background" color (so-called "ICE color") supporte is enabled or a custom font is loaded for the blink-attribute combination, then generally blinking is disabled in SyncTERM (though it is technically possible to get both).

    I can call two separate boards same SyncTerm settings if it's not Synchronet based I see te blink.

    But I'll fool with the settings and see.
