Hello everyone!

I'm a beginner in this world of MUDs, and one thing that really triggers my OCD is that I can't find a way to clear MUSHclient's main screen output. Is there a command of hotkey I can activate for that?

Thanks!

That will, however, clear your history. What it is really doing is removing the entire scrollback history.

MUSHclient isn't a terminal emulator, there is no way to just blank the screen, but keep the history.

Thanks! It seems that it is a good idea to keep the history. What I did, instead, was, I created a macro that sends 10 blank lines, so the screen is cleared but I keep the history. Thanks!

So my questions now are

1) Why are you doing this?
2) Why is your screen only 10 lines? That's very small.
