Hi,

I have an issue with the scaling of the console on Win10, ConEmu 150722.

Whenever I lock the screen, I get a toast notification of

Maximum real console size was reached
Decrease font size in the real console properties

On unlock, the console is scaled incorrectly, taking up only a portion of the actual area. This also seems to happen on some other actions, but is 100% repeatable on screen lock.

I have one log with the error here:

Let me know if there's anything else I can get you to help! Thanks!

This is a log from ConEmuC64.exe only. But I need all logs at once.

Sure! This is after scrubbing the logs, launching ConEmu as Admin with /log, and then locking the screen.

Three log files:
ConEmuC64-size-13148.log
ConEmu-gui-28324.log
ConEmu-input-13148.log

You can Ctrl-F for each file, let me know if you'd like the raw files zipped up and dumped somewhere, or if this works!

Please reveal RealConsole (Ctrl+Win+Alt+Space) and do full-screen screenshots before Lock and after Unlock.

Definitely some change...Let me know if this is most likely just some weird configuration on my end, I can hack at my powershell defaults and such. Thanks!

I have this problem as well on windows 10. This is because I have a 2 monitor setup and my 2nd monitor has a bigger screen resolution than my 1st monitor. If I have conemu on my 2nd monitor taking the whole height and when I lock the screen (Win + L), the message appears.

If, however, I reduce the height to something smaller than my 1st monitor (even if it is on my 2nd), the error won't occur. It will occur again if I then resize (to something bigger than my 1st monitor height) the window after re-entering the system from the lock screen.

If I don't lock the screen, then no error occurs independent of windows size and resizes.
It may be because windows shuts the 2nd monitor off and it didn't on windows 8 (never happened there) forcing a move to the 1st and causing the error.

I had the same problems and it looks like I've been able to fix them.

Fire up your normal cmd.exe (or use Ctrl+Win+Alt+Space to open the real console from conemu), go to properties, activate the checkbox "use legacy console" and then relaunch.

New conhost.exe "improvements" really seem to be the problem here.

As temporary workaround - may be... (SystemMenu / Debug / RealConsole properties is a faster way)

But you'll lose ability to wrap lines on resizing...

It is fixed for me using 150816. Same conditions I described above. Thanks!

@Maximus5 1+ thank you, this worked for me on windows 10 as I was getting this error and could not figure out why

I have this problem on my Windows 10 laptop, no external monitor. I notice it particularly because Windows 10 has a habit of auto-locking when I'm in the middle of working sigh. I suspect it's a resolution problem, because when I unlock, the conemu window is still full-screen but the actual console in each section (i usually have split console windows) is about half its size. I run at 3200x1800.

Hopefully this is what you asked for. This is only after using the -log switch, if you need another level (-log1 -log4 etc) let me know. I grepped the log files, and found the error message:

ConEmu-con-11476.log:10:20:54.331 [17848] Maximum real console size {116,36} was reached, lesser size {116,36} was applied than requested {256,59}

AFAIK I haven't changed any of the default settings. Let me know if you need anything else.
