Want to enable infinite scrollback in iTerm2? By default, iTerm2 has a scrollback buffer of 1000 lines. Since most of my day is doing builds and running watch tasks with lots of output, I want to have infinite scrollback.

  1. In iTerm2, open Settings
  2. Click on Profiles
  3. Cick on Terminal
  4. Under the Scrollback Buffer Heading, click the checkbox for Unlimited scrollback
