Good afternoon,
One of my major issues with Windows console is the maximum buffer height, being 9999.

I had hoped that conEmu could solve this issue, but there seem to be issues here as well: in the conEmu.xml, I have modified the value tag "DefaultBufferHeight" to:
<value name="DefaultBufferHeight" type="dword" data="ffffffff"/>

(for your information, the previous version was:
<value name="DefaultBufferHeight" type="dword" data="0000270f"/>
I have simply replaced every character by "f".)

but the conEmu program seems not to understand this value and replaces it by 300 (far too small).

Are there any plans to increase the maximum buffer height, as mentioned in the conEmu.xml file?
Thanks
Dominique

So many words... Why don't just open Settings / Size&Pos and change console buffer height?

Maximum allowed value is 32766 lines.

Thanks, Maximus, for the fast reply.
As I mentioned, I wanted to have more than 9.999 lines, but in the Settings/Size&Pos the value 99.999 was not allowed, and the hint did not mention the maximum of 32766, therefore I had a look into the conEmu.xml file. There I saw the possibility to put 8 hexadecimal characters, ...
I have no put the maximum value of 32766 and this is working fine.
In order to avoid questions like those, maybe it's an idea to put the minimum/maximum value in the hint of every number field of the "Settings" tab.

Chiming in from the future: I too tried setting it to a value like 9999999, which got truncated to 9999, which made me WTF that ConEmu won't go above 9999 lines.

I'm a serious dev doing serious dev work and serious devs need infinite scrollback. 32766 is kind of limiting. Would you accept a PR to increase the max size beyond 32766?

@shawwn Definitely I will accept working PR. But if you think that this imaginary PR contains few lines of code, you will be disappointed. It have to be thousand of lines at least.
