True color mode with powershell doesn't scroll correctly #1569

ConEmu build: 180506 x64
OS version: Windows 10 1703 x64
Used shell version: PowerShell

Problem description

The position of the fancy 256 background colors do not scroll with the content. I'm using \Addons\AnsiColors256.ans to print out the color content to test. If my prompt has a single line (as seen in the gif below) the part of the background colors stay in the same place as the content scrolls.


Additionally, when my prompt is two lines (a new line character in the prompt) the results are messed up right away and when scrolling the 16 color boxes scroll at 2 lines per ENTER pressed and the 256 color boxes scroll at 1 line per ENTER pressed. This is different from the single line prompt shown in the gif above where the 256 color boxes stay in the same position all the time.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open powershell tab
  2. run gc PATH TO YOUR CONEMU\Addons\AnsiColors256.ans
  3. Hit enter over and over to scroll the screen with new lines

Should I have not closed this? I didn't realize you had some automation stuff doing things...
