Microsoft releases preview of Windows Terminal 1.14 and Windows Terminal 1.15


Microsoft recently announced the release of Windows Terminal 1.14 as well as Windows Terminal Preview 1.15. These two versions can be installed from the Windows Store or the Github releases page.

Windows Terminal 1.14 contains the features of the preview version, while the 1.15 preview contains a number of new features to explore.

Users can now use their keyboards to select any text in the text buffer with markup mode. To enter mark mode, type Ctrl+Shift+M and move the arrow keys to your starting position. Next, hold down the Shift key and use the arrow keys to make a selection. To exit mark mode, click Esc and to select all texts in the buffer, click Ctrl+A.

Actions that can be performed in mark mode include creating a block selection using the keyboard and modifying the current selection using the keyboard.

Windows Terminal also now supports scroll marks. With this, users can automatically add scroll marks to their profile for every command entered by adding the experimental.autoMarkPromtps parameter.

This setting allows scrolling to each mark with scroll mark actions. However, in order to make them visible in the scrollbar, customers must add the experimental.showMark0nScrollbar parameter to their profiles.

Some examples of scroll mark actions are addMark to add a scroll mark to the text buffer, scrolltoMark to scroll to the scroll mark in the given direction, clearMark to clear the scroll mark at the current position, and clearAllMarks to clear all scroll marks in the damp test.

Additionally, users now have access to PowerShell “black bars” patch removal. This release removes fixes that prevent unexpected black backgrounds from appearing while running PowerShell.

Other miscellaneous improvements include Windows Terminal support for the DECPS escape sequence, launching empty files as a copy of Windows Terminal settings, “magenta” and “brightMagenta” are now accepted as color schemes instead of “purple” and “brightPurple”, and more.
