Here's a fun one.

For the longest time, I couldn't understand why MUSHclient would continuously pause the output after I had scrolled back and then returned to the bottom.

It was particularly irksome since, as far as I know, there's no visual indicator of a pause. So, I would scroll back down, assume things were fine, wonder why I wasn't getting more output, and discover that, if I scrolled down, more had occurred.

Then I discovered Auto-Pause in the settings.

I unchecked "Auto Pause" I also unchecked "Un-Pause on Send" as I was frustrated by MUSHclient jumping back down when new stuff arrived.

Things seemed to work well.

However, for no known reason, one particular session appears to be Auto-Pausing again. Auto-Pause is not selected, and I've scrolled to the bottom repeatedly to try and get it back on track.

I haven't restarted MUSHclient yet. I suspect that may fix it, but I'm curious if this is a known issue.

In the World Toolbar ( View->World Toolbar ) there's a button that depresses when paused. The icon is a picture of paw prints.

Thank you! There's so many buttons and options, I really should hover over things more.

Paws in fact. Paws/pause ... it's a joke!

It shouldn't stay paused when you return to the bottom. When you scroll up the word "MORE" in inverse should appear in the status line at the bottom. Plus the two "paws" are activated to indicated you are paws'd (paused). (My humour is too much!).

Pressing Ctrl+End should return you to the bottom of the screen, the paws should be inactive and the word "MORE" should disappear.
