Ubuntu – Terminal limits scrolling

command line

I have a running log, it outputs a lot to the terminal. Unfortunately, when I try to scroll up and view older output, it appears there is a limit. And I am unable to scroll past a certain point. On the Mac, the terminal allows you to scroll up to the start of the session. Is there a way to do this in ubuntu terminal?

Go to Edit -> Profile Preference -> Scrolling Tab

Now just tick the Unlimited box below Scrollback.

You will now be able to see your entire output.
