VT, SCO-ANSI, AT386 Settings - Display Display Page

You can use the options in the Display page to control the appearance of your emulation window. Many of these options correspond to the options available on the DIGITAL terminal.

You can change the VT page width, page size, and character size. You can couple the cursor to automatically keep in view the portion of the page where the cursor is located, and you can control the rate of VT scrolling.
