As we push the limits of tmux further and further you are bound to end up in a situation where you are mashing down a hotkey and it's just not doing what you want it to do, and you have no idea why.
show-messages is a tmux command that can be used to show what tmux is
actually doing behind the scenes. This might highlight any hot key conflicts
you might have in your
man page for show-messages
In case you wnat more information about show-messages, here is the man page.
show-messages [-JT] [-t target-client] (alias: showmsgs) Show server messages or information. Messages are stored, up to a maximum of the limit set by the message-limit server option. -J and -T show debugging information about jobs and terminals.
