 +[[bind]] <key> scroll_backward
 +This executes the [[WINDOW]] [[window SCROLL_BACKWARD|SCROLL_BACKWARD]]
 +command.  ​
 +It moves the scrollback view backward, towards older output.  ​
 +The amount it moves is determined by [[set scrollback_ratio]] as a percentage.  ​
 +It is normal for the client to switch to the scrollback view when you scroll
 +back, so you should immediately see an effect.
 +When you reach reach the start of the scrollback buffer, further attempts ​
 +to go backward will beep, and the scrollback will not change.
 +Whenever the scrollback view is active, new output to your window is buffered ​
 +("​held"​) without limit, so you will never lose any output. ​ A common cause of
 +high memory usage is a window on a busy channel being stuck in scrollback mode
 +and then forgotten. ​ Since the scrollback is never trimmed, it grows without
 +limit, which can use up a lot of memory quickly. ​ You can use the %K status
 +bar expando to tell you when a window is using the scrollback view.
