I know that I can split the Terminal into multiple panes. Opening a new pane can be done using Cmd+D. Closing a pane can be done using Shift+Cmd+D.

The problem I am now facing is that all existing panes are synced. Meaning: If I type in one pane, the same text appears in all other open panes.


  1. How can I un-sync those panes?
  2. How can I switch between panes?

It would be nice to have a keyboard-shortcut-answer for both questions.
