I just tried with 6.3.0 and 7.0.0 crossbuilt yesterday on my system that AFAICS matches the OP's; all works fine there.

Closing report.

This bug report is now 3 years old.  Please try with the latest stable release which is 5.1.0.  The problem is likely to have been fixed.

Thanks for reporting this bug. Octave's command window for Windows is based on the Windows console, and probably has limitations due to that basis. Patches are welcome that would fix the existing implementation. There is also some interest in redoing the command window to be a platform independent Qt widget and be and more flexible and configurable.

I'm using a monitor setup with the primary in landscape and the secondary in portrait. If Octave is put on the secondary monitor, there are issues with the command window prompt. The prompt is stuck in the middle of the screen and the bottom of the command window is always empty white space. It works fine when put on the primary monitor. Also if the primary is changed to portrait, there is no problem on the secondary monitor.
The number of lines displayed in the command window on the secondary monitor matches the number of lines displayed when it is on the primary monitor. Seems like something in the command window is dependent on the primary monitor size. This problem doesn't happen with any other GUI elements.
