macOS: resizing window destroys content #1206

How to reproduce:

  1. do a ls in a folder with some content
  2. make the window height and width very small ( hiding content )
  3. make window size large again
  4. text is cut / disappears

I'm on macOS, kitty version 0.13.0 with an empty kitty.config.

Here are some screenshots:

  1. after ls before resize

Expected behaviour after 2. would be 1.

Thanks! The text is not cut anymore, but when i minimize and expand the window, i have to scroll up to show the text again. It seem a bit arbitrary where the text occurs and the behaviour is not consistent with the Terminal app. Could this be fixed also? @kovidgoyal

I'm afraid not, the behavior is perfectly logical to me. When you make the window smaller, less text remains ont he screen, since the screen can fit less text. So when you then make the smaller window larger again, only that small amount of text remains on the screen to be shown. Some terminals automatically extract content from the scrollback buffer to fill the screen when making the terminal larger, but this is not behavior I like.
