Until recently, when I scrolled in my terminal, it scrolled through the history. However, recently that behavior changed and now it scrolls through the command history.

Where is the setting to change it back?

    How do you scroll? – nohillside Oct 18 '15 at 20:21

  • Do you use the shell inside some other program like tmux or screen? By default Terminal sends input to the tty if the alternate screen is active, to cause programs like editors and pagers to scroll in response to scroll gestures. Those programs select the alternate screen. – Chris Page Oct 29 '15 at 12:02
  • Nope. I was using the default terminal app. – rsegal Nov 4 '15 at 15:23
