You are using non-English OS. You type a message but
you could not see your message. You resize the window and two (local and remote)
windows becomes one.
Reason: These problem is caused by the incorrect font size. The default font
size is 12.25. However, the non-English OS may read it as 1225, which is way too

will adjust the size to display the big font.
Solution: Just go to Tools - Options - Font and choose a 12 or 14 font size.

data. When you start the program, enter xdrowssaPon

password settings. Password security has no effect until you remove this key.
