if the underlying app is producing output (like make) it is possible to stop the output with the vertical scrollbar.
resuming is less intuitive
- move down the slider wich migth get cumbersom if the output is very fast becaus you never reach teh end.
- hit the MMB - not documented feature ??
- Create a button "Resume" like I have seen it in Reflection (deactivate "Hold-Button")

Just press enter.
not possible with the mouse
Comment #1 is correct. If you want to use the mouse, move the scrollbar to the end.
If you want a button, where would you put it? Konsole doesn't have a toolbar; perhaps if it did...
the windows Reflection ha a button at the end of the scroll bar
Unless there is something obvious I am missing, pressing Enter to get to the end of the output is easy. Clicking a small button on the scrollbar seems more difficult to me since the target area which has to be clicked would be very small. Pressing Enter only requires that the terminal display has the focus, which can be done by clicking anywhere in the display area.
I never would consider to press enter as a solution if I have stopped the scrolling.
what about if the last - not visible - line is something like
"press enter to remove all your data"?
must not be that bad, but it could be just a "read x" in a bash to ask you what should be done next.
Then hit space or an arrow key or whatever.

I cannot think of a real scenario where a program producing huge volumes of output would then echo a prompt such that pressing enter or space would do something dangerous.
The other thing you said is that hitting a key to scroll to the end of the output is not intuitive for you. If that is the case I can think of some alternative solutions, such as displaying a little label in the corner of the display when the scrollbar is not at the bottom of the display indicating that pressing any key or clicking with the middle mouse button will scroll.
we have some long running programs which produce considerable (log) output and then ask the user to check if everything is OK.
at the end:
echo "is all ok"
I am sure there are other solutions for this.
BTW it would be a general soultion for all scrollbars
- got to top/end
Or, press Control and click at the bottom of the scrollbar to move there immediately.
And clicking with the middle mouse button has the same effect as pressing control while left clicking.
that's a good one
just who knows this?
Okay, I have been persuaded that closing this was premature. As I said before, I don't think adding a button to the scroll bar is the best solution because it couldn't be very large - adding some sort of hint to the user interface is doable. Or at least, I can try it and see how well it works before deciding whether to include it or not.

Add shortcuts to jump to top & bottom of history.
The shortcut of jumping to top of history is for the request of #45950
The shortcut of jumping to bottom of history is added not only for
consistency, but also to be used for #38390, especially its comment #9
