I'm under OS X El Capitan 10.11.1. When I try to search in terminal text by cmd+F it starts to search from the beginning rather than from the end backwards as it was in terminal on Ubuntu.

So how can I change the search direction to start a search from the end in terminal?

    Maybe not a solution, but just like with most applications, Cmd+G repeats last search and Cmd+Shift+G does the same thing, but in the other direction. I think third party terminal applications might give you more control. I believe iTerm, by default, starts searching from bottom upwards. – Joonas Mar 18 '16 at 10:30
  • @Joonas, thanks a lot for the reply. Indeed it's not pure solution but it's something that can help – Lesha Pipiev Mar 18 '16 at 11:02
