cannot stop output

the console output of IDEA cannot be "stopped"

Would be very useful if you could stop the output for a while to analyze some traces, then hit another button maybe, to get the incoming tail of the traces again.

Is it worth a JIRA entry? ;)

Isn't this what the Pause button does?

Just press Scroll Lock while the output pane is in focus. It will... lock the scrolling :)

sounds good - but my keyboard has no scroll-lock key.
do you know if it can be remapped?

no, the pause button is "pause program",
that means like setting a breakpoint

That's in debug mode. In run mode, the pause button temporarily stops
output (but IIRC the system keeps buffering output so everything that
was buffered is shown at once when you press pause again).

Hello Michael,

Another trick would be move the caret cursor in console window out of the
output end. Output will still be produced but scrolling will stop.
Works in both debug and run modes.
