When in copy mode in tmux, using the mouse is there a way to select text, and scroll the window up at the same time? When selecting text the buffer does not scroll up when I reach the top boundary.

I have set-window-option -g mode-mouse on in my /.tmux.conf

From my .tmux.conf:

# Using scroll 
setw -g mode-mouse on

# Sane scrolling
set -g terminal-overrides 'xterm*:smcup@:rmcup@'

This enables the scrolling with mouse and during the selection, it can go beyond the boundaries. Just hold shift when you're selecting.

It works for me using Mint linux.
