In iTerm2, Cmd+D adds another pane in the window with a new session. Straightfoward, useful - but not what I want.
In Terminal, I could use Cmd+D to split the window with the same session. Both windows held the same data - if I put a command in the bottom, I could see it at the top. They just viewed different parts of the same session.
However, Terminal does not allow the top pane to be the focused, active window. It's just another view of the bottom session. I downloaded iTerm2 specifically because I want the top pane to be the active session, while the bottom is an alternate view. (I like having things at the top of my screen)
iTerm2's documentation states:
iTerm2 allows you to divide a tab into many rectangular "panes", each of which is a different terminal session.
Do they really regress here vs normal Terminal?
Are there other alternatives that would give this functionality?
