    the shell is zsh and the codes are shortcuts for \e48;5;<K>m and \e38;5;<F>m

    Apparently the issue is that overhanging or overlapping rendering only works within one "run", i.e. sequence of characters being output in the same chunk. This only applies to a sequence of characters with the same character attributes.
    You set black foreground directly before the glyph and reset it directly afterwards, so that cannot work. If you include the surrounding spaces in the black foreground section, it will work.
    Compare these:
    echo -e "\e[44m \e[31m\e[39m \e[m"
    echo -e "\e[31m\e[44m  \e[m"

    For the records: the week after my previous comment, I implemented advanced italic overhang handling. Released in 2.7.6.

    What would that have to do with mintty?

    Let's talk about the mintty for Windows Store .
    mintty
    @mintty
    OK.

    @Biswa96
    Do you solve that pvk2pfx.exe problem? I think why not you just publish the appx and then write all the readme and build procedure.
    mintty
    @mintty
    1. No.
    1. Have you checked whether it's actually possible to publish an appx with a test certificate? I'm not sure, and I was assuming we're going to publish instruction how to build an appx package with the user's own test certificate...
      1. I feel you're eager to get forward but I'm busy with work and other stuff too, so if you want my feedback, please have some patience :/
    (4) Once we're done, maybe we can arrange some sponsored certificate; and I'll gladly leave it to you to publish the package then and earn the reputation...
    Biswapriyo Nath
    @Biswa96
    I thought you will going to publish in Windows store. Ok, as you wish, I shall concentrate on writing the instructions. I don't want to earn reputation. I just love coding....
    Biswapriyo Nath
    @Biswa96
    As I said I'm making a batch script that make that appx automatically. But the msbuild from Windows\FrameWork shows some error. So one has to install visual studio. I'm now depending on Appveyor CI. See this ://stackoverflow.com/q/43065264/8928481

    Hello. When I run the mintty.exe that comes with Git Bash, I see this window: https://i.imgur.com/FRZYZ2k.png
    Where is that defined in the mintty source code, and how do I get mintty to choose a specific shell by default?
    David Macek
    @elieux
    @brianpeiris, this is a downstream patch.
    Upstream developers don't know about it.
    The patch lives in a msys2-packages repo either in the Git for Windows org. or under Alexpux.
    And if you want a specific "shell", you should use the appropriate launcher, not just start the terminal.
    David Macek
    @elieux
    I'm not sure if Git for Windows even comes with a notion of different "shells".

    Ah, interesting. Thanks for the info!

    Hello
    I need some help regarding drag n drop directories in mintty or cygwin using Mintty
    the issue is that when I drag it the prompt recognize the path but with single back slash "\" is it a way to permit single back slash or when I drag the route ... drag with double slashes ?
    
    Ruslan Gonzalez@RUSO ~
    $ cd C://wamp2
    
    Ruslan Gonzalez@RUSO /cygdrive/c/wamp2
    $ cd C:\\wamp2
    
    Ruslan Gonzalez@RUSO /cygdrive/c/wamp2
    $ cd C:\\wamp2\www
    bash: cd: C:\wamp2www: No such file or directory
    
    Ruslan Gonzalez@RUSO /cygdrive/c/wamp2
    $ cd C:\\wamp2\\www
    
    Ruslan Gonzalez@RUSO /cygdrive/c/wamp2/www

    If you drag a file system item (e.g. from an Explorer window), the path will be converted to POSIX syntax (no backslash).
    If it wasn't converted, you've pasted text format (the clipboard is tagged with content types...) which will not be converted.
    Backslash on the command line needs either escaping or enclosing in single quotes: cd 'C:\wamp2\www'.

    Mintty supports 24 bit color, what does a cygwin user need to do to make that work. I know there is mention of *-direct but the information said something else needed to be installed to make that work.
    mintty
    @mintty
    The terminal provides support via escape sequences. Any application that sends the respective sequences can make use of the feature, nothing else needs to be installed.
    Applications that access the terminal capabilities only via terminfo or ncurses, on the other hand, would need the xterm-direct or mintty-direct terminfo description which is not yet available in cygwin.

    Hi there. I'm trying to make alternate emoji sets work in wsltty without luck
    I was originalyl going to file a github issue but realise now this wouldn't be appropriate
    so just going to paste what I was going to write:
    The Tips section for emojis needs to be updated. The script for the Unicode site no longer works, because the site now pulls all assets dynamically so you can't just save them.
    It seems no browser - or even wget, can get around this, and they don't save. The sole exception is IE11, which saves everything as 0-byte temp files.
    I have also been unable to use other emojis with wsltty (I tried with twemoji), even after batch-renaming all files and similar efforts. Please consider inheriting the native Windows 10 emoji pack (my preferred) in addition to offering this if at all possible...
    my connection's a bit 'all over the place' and I don't run a bnc anymore, but this is all logged on Gitter so feel free to respond whenever if you have any ideas, I know the irc way :) cheers!

    I'll look into the unicode.org issue, wasn't aware yet.
