Scrolling in terminal

I typically use ssh terminal to run my python code so I keep scrolling in the terminal, it would be of great help if there is a keyboard shortcut for scroll in terminal.

Did you try Cmd-Up and Cmd-Down to send Page Up/Down commands?


it did not work for me. Also the touch screen scroll does not work on terminal.

Are you on iOS 13? I'm asking because there is a bug in iOS 13 so that touch scrolling does not work.

I would also like to see this implemented, using a terminal without being able to scroll up is not fun. I end up having to use the terminal on my laptop just to be able to see the longer outputs. Doesn't work in both iPadOS and iOS.

Due to changes in WebKit on iOS 13, scrolling in the SSH terminal does not work anymore (it worked in iOS 12 and earlier). I already spent a few days trying to make it work again, but I could only get either text selection or scrolling to work, but not both at the same time.

I hope I can fix this in a future update. It may require a rewrite of the whole terminal engine.
