DelimList=$20 ; space character
In the DelimList line, only singe-byte code characters can be specified. Double-byte code characters (Japanese kanji) are regarded as delimiters. You can make them be non-delimiters by editing the DelimDBCS line like the following:
If you prefer the word selection behavior of earlier Tera Term versions, specify like the following:

When the window is inactive, you can activate the window by clicking the text area of window. In the default setup, the text selection is started by this mouse clicking at the same time. To disable the text selection when the window is activated by mouse, edit the SelectOnActive line in the [Tera Term] section of the setup file like the following:

You can change the key code for the left mouse button by editing the TEKGINMouseCode line in the [Tera Term] section of the setup file like the following:
<format ID> is an integer value. It is treated as bit string.
|1st bit (1)||Displays tcp hostname or serial port number|
|2nd bit (2)||Displays session No.|
|3rd bit (4)||Displays VT/TEK|
|4th bit (8)||Displays <host/port> first|
|5th bit (16)||Displays TCP port number|
|6th bit (32)||Displays the baud rate of serial port|
Examples of <format ID> are shown as follows.
Format ID Title format 0 <title> 1 <title> - <host/port> 2 <title> (session no.) 3 <title> - <host/port> (session no.) 4 <title> VT/TEK 5 <title> - <host/port> VT/TEK 6 <title> (session no.) VT/TEK 7 <title> - <host/port> (session no.) VT/TEK 13 <host/port> - <title> VT/TEK 29 <host:tcpport/port> - <title> VT/TEK 45 <host/port:baud> - <title> VT/TEK 61 <host:tcpport/port:baud> - <title> VT/TEK
The escape sequences "<ESC>[37m" and "<ESC>[30m" make the text color white and black, respectively. Similarly, the escape sequences "<ESC>[47m" and "<ESC>[40m" make the background color white and black, respectively.
Some applications assume that the screen background is black (like real VT100 terminal), and expect that white colored text is visible. However, the default background color of Tera Term is white, and therefore white colored text is invisible.
If you edit the UseTextColor line in the [Tera Term] section of the setup file like the following:
the actual color of "white" colored text (background) becomes a color for "Text" specified in the [Setup] Window dialog box. Similarly, the actual colors for "black" text (background) becomes a color for "Background".
To change space between characters (lines), edit the VTFontSpace line in the [Tera Term] section of the setup file like the following:
Where: <dx1> Left side space for each character in pixels. <dx2> Right side space for each character in pixels. <dy1> Space above each line in pixels. <dy2> Space below each line in pixels.
Example: VTFontSpace=0,1,0,0 1 pixel of right side space for each character. VTFontSpace=0,0,1,0 1 pixel of space above each line.
To hide the [Window] menu, edit the WindowMenu line in the [Tera Term] section of the setup file like the following:
To specify the detailed settings for Eterm lookfeel window, edit the [BG] section of the setup file like the following:
|BGSPIPath||folder name||This option can specify Susie plugin path to load the image. Susie is Japanese free software.|
|BGFastSizeMove||On / Off||This option enables Tera Term window moving and resizing to more faster. This feature is valid in Windows dragging mode.|
|BGFlickerlessMove||On / Off||This option can reduce the flicker of window moving.|
|BGUseAlphaBlendAPI||On / Off||For debug. Tera Term does not use AlphaBlend API when this option is off.|
|BGNoFrame||On / Off||Tera Term window is without frame when this option is on and HideTitle option is on. If so, you can resize window with Alt + Shift + LeftDrag.|
|BGThemeFile||file name||You can specify the theme file.
Tera Term will randomly select one of files when the theme file is specify with wildcard.
Default: BGUseAlphaBlendAPI = On BGSPIPath = plugin BGFastSizeMove = On BGFlickerlessMove = On BGNoFrame = Off BGThemeFile = theme\*.ini
|BGReverseTextTone||0 - 255||The transparency value of the reverse text.|
|BGPictureFile||file name||You can specify the image file name merging with the wall paper.
Tera Term will randomly select one of files when the wild card is specified.
Please specify the relative path from the theme file when you want to use the relative path.
The kind of file that Tera Term can load is depend the plugin stored in BGSPIPath.
Tera Term can load the bitmap file when there is not plugin.
|You can specify the painting method of the image file.
Both FitWidth and FitHeight can expand or reduce the image while the aspect ratio of the image preserves.
AutoFit can exchange FitWidth for FitHeight not to generate the space between the window and the image.
|BGPictureBaseColor||R, G, B||This color can paint between the image file and the window.|
|BGPictureTone||0 - 255||The transparency value of the image file.|
|BGFadeTone||0 - 255||This option can enable the whole background to fade.|
|BGFadeColor||R, G, B||This option can configure the fade color.|
|VTFore, Red ...||R, G, B||This option can configure the text color.|
A user can configure the extension of the theme file based on the theme\Advanced.sample file.
For example, an image file(sample.jpg) can be drawn in the Tera Term background. Please specify the .ini file at the BGThemeFile entry of the teraterm.ini file.
[BG] ; Advanced Setting ; Image source setting ; Type : Color / Picture / Wallpaper : Pattern : Stretch / Tile / Center / FitWidth / FitHeight / AutoFit ; AntiAlias : On / Off ; Color : R,G,B (0-255) ; Alpha : 0-255 ; File : wildcard => random select ; Dest = (Src1 * Src1Alpha + Dest * (255 - Src1Alpha)) / 255 ; Dest = (Src2 * Src2Alpha + Dest * (255 - Src2Alpha)) / 255 BGReverseTextAlpha = 192 ; BGDestType = Picture BGDestFile = sample.jpg BGDestPattern = AutoFit BGDestAntiAlias = On BGDestColor = 0,0,0 ; BGSrc1Type = Color BGSrc1File = BGSrc1Pattern = BGSrc1AntiAlias = BGSrc1Color = 32,32,32 BGSrc1Alpha = 64 ; BGSrc2Type = Color BGSrc2File = BGSrc2Pattern = BGSrc2AntiAlias = BGSrc2Color = 32,32,32 BGSrc2Alpha = 64
The screen scrolling method can be specified when the window size is maximized.
When the window size is maximized, the screen will be corrupted while the screen is scrolling as same normal window.
So, a user can change the method of scrolling method.
The default value is Method 2 when the window size is maximized. If you have a problem by using scrolling, the method can be changed another method.
For example, when the MaximizedBugTweak entry of [Tera Term] section is changed below setting, the Method 1 is used for scrolling.
Tera Term will display the cursor even if the window comes out of focus.
If you want to disable this option, modify a line of KillFocusCursor in [Tera Term] section of setup file as follows.
In order to change the default window position, change values of VTPos line(VT Window) and TEKPos line(TEK Window) at [Tera Term] section inside the setup file.
For example, if you want to set the default VT window position to 200 pixels from the left side of the screen and 100px from the top of the screen, change the setup file as follows.
The initial position is not fixed and Windows can decide the position by changing the setup file as follows.
Notice: As described below, if SaveVTPosWinPos is on and at the time of executing "Save setup" or closing VT window, VTPos setting will be overwritten by current window position setting.
Default: VTPos=-2147483648,-2147483648 TEKPos=-2147483648,-2147483648
Tera Term does not save the window position when "Save setup" was called.
If you enable this position, current window position is saved to a specified setup file.
Also if this option is enabled, current window position and terminal size are saved to the current setup file when VT window was closed.
Tera Term executable program includes "VT window" icon, "TEK window" icon, and some other icons. If you change the value of VTIcon or TEKIcon, the displaying icon of VT window or TEK window is changed.
For example, to use old icon for VT window, specify like the following:
Following icon names are available:
|Default||Default("VT" at VT window, "TEK" at TEK window)|
Also, the icon of SSH connection can be changed. For example, when the yellow icon(TTSSH2.62 earlier) is specified, please change the SSHIcon entry in the [TTSSH] section in the following:
The SSHIcon can be specified in the following names:
|Default||A default icon(equal to flat)|
Default: VTIcon=Default TEKIcon=Default SSHIcon=Default
