Clear Immediate Debug Window (Visual Studio for Mac)

David Dunham 1 Reputation point

When I use the Immediate window, it fills up with output as I debug.

I would like to erase it so the stuff from the last debug session is gone.

Unlike Xcode (which has a Trash gadget), there doesn’t seem to be a way to do this. No contextual menu does it, either.

I’m happy doing it manually. ( doesn’t seem at all relevant.)

And >cls (from does not work, at least on the Mac.

How can I clear it?
