Input Position

Warp gives you the ability to configure the position of your input, which includes both the prompt and the command line.
You can select from three different input positions, which each have different modes of behavior for the flow of input/output Blocks.
Input position
Behavior
Pin to the bottom (Warp default mode)
By default, Warp starts with input pinned to the bottom of your terminal view. Blocks of grouped input/output flow up and out of view. You can scroll up or navigate up to visit past commands.
Start at the top (Classic mode)
When you select “start at the top,” the prompt with input will initiate at the top of the view and move down in the view as you enter commands. Blocks of input/output will stack above the prompt and command input. You can scroll up or navigate up to visit past commands. You can enter CTRL-L or the 'clear' command at any time to return the input to the top of the screen while still maintaining your scroll history.
Pin to the top (Reverse mode)
When you select “pin to the top,” the prompt with input will display pinned to the top of your terminal view. Blocks of grouped input/output will flow down the view in reverse order with your latest results at the top. You can scroll down or navigate down to visit past commands. For long-running commands, you can also click "Lock scrolling at bottom of block" to continue to follow the stdout.

How to access it

  • You can configure your input position by navigating to Settings > Appearance > Input.
  • You can also choose and set modes from the Command Palette.
Changes to the Input position take place immediately and apply to all open panes.
