Octave – Can’t scroll Window, Workaround

Strange problem with Octave (my version is 4.4.0), in the GUI I can’t scroll the ‘Command Window’, so if some code outputs lots of info I can’t scroll up to see it all, the window keeps jumping to the bottom as I try to scroll!

I am not sure why its happening, but a workaround is to enter the ‘pause’ command within the window, once pause executes I can scroll to my heart’s content.  I  then hit ctrl-c to exit pause.

It is possible that installing a newer version of Octave would fix this but I am not bothered to upgrade at the moment as all of the Maths bits seem to work very well!
