Feature request: Clear screen command #372
It would be nice to have a menu option/hotkey/macro that could clear the screen (visible and buffer), that does not rely on 'cls' or 'clear' or any other batch command to be entered.
Example: I'm running an application through telnet or Putty, and this application is spitting out console output as it goes along. I'd like to clear the screen before performing a given action, so that I can only see the resulting console output related to that action.
A 'Clear screen' option on the Edit menu, right next to 'Copy all' would be first prize.
I'm currently running ConEmu 150913
OK, but you would assume that the user is clearing the console because he/she really wants it cleared. Same as closing the window. If you shut it down without saving changes, you're going to lose them.
Surely you should assume that the user performing an action is aware of what they're doing. An 'Are you sure...' message box on the Clear command would prevent an inadvertent clear, same as the one asking to confirm that you're closing multiple tabs etc.
… (dangerous). I'm still sure that this operation is harmful and dangerous: <https://conemu.github.io/en/ClearScreen.html>. But since GuiMacro `Write` exists, anyone may create a macro for `Write("\ec")`, which the hotkey actualy executes. BTW, with `Write` macro anyone may push to console several colored lines, using ANSI sequences, to ‘mark’ some point in real-time logs (tail -f). Write "\n\n\e[91m========== '\e]9;8;\"time\"\e\\' ==========\e[m\n\n"
