I'm starting to use tmux, and I already love it. But if I could search through scrollback history it would be even better (e.g. like in iTerm2). Is there a way to do it as of now?


When you're in scrollback mode, you can use ctrl-S to search. More useful information here: How can I search within the output buffer of a tmux shell?

    Ctrl-S works for emacs bindings. If your tmux is using vim bindings, enter copy mode and use slash (/) – phs Jan 20 '17 at 20:23
