I am trying to split the console window into multiple sections so that I can type in one window and monitor a tail -f in another window. I tried View -> Split View, but that creates a duplicate of the current session in the second screen. Is there a way to have separate sessions in the same window?
To get different instances of the shell in each split window, first open a new tab, then split the window into two views. Each one will then operate independently of the other. But without using multiple tabs, the split windows just show two views on the same instance of the shell.
