Why isn't the scrollback showing / Why is the scrollback taking the entire display area?

There are two scrollback modes - full screen and split screen. This option is set in the Session Options, Term/input tab by checking or unchecking Full Screen Scrollback. However sometimes when this is unchecked and you expect to get a divided window with scrollback above and current game below you either see no scrollback or see a full screen of scrollback.

If you see a full screen of scrollback (the entire screen is surrounded by a red rectangle) first try hitting control-[END] or [ESC] and try scrolling back again. If the screen is still not split use the mouse to grab and drag the splitterbar that is right along the top edge of your input line. Drag this up to divide the display into current and scrollback portions

If you see no scrollback at all use the mouse to grab the top edge of your session window and drag it downward.
