AW: [dev] [dvtm] Scrolling back

Sorry Greg,

I am running dvtm from a linux text console. I am splitting up my main window into a couple of tiled windows. In one of these windows I run a command that outputs a lot of text. Now I want to scroll back in this specific window. In want to use "shift-page up" to scroll back, because this is the key binding for scrolling back defined in dvtm.

But instead of scrolling back the content of my window, this scrolls back the whole screen.

I hope this was more comprehensible.

Dear Bruno,

I don't know what you're asking.  What do you want?
