While explaining PREFIX-f, you could add that it not only finds windows with a certain name, but also finds/lists all windows that contain the given word *anywhere* (in an open text editor, as part of the shell prompt, in a debug output, etc.).
(Unrelated: Maybe you could also mention that tmux gets developed in openbsd, just to give some credit.)
Anyways, thanks for this great book; I really enjoy reading it!--Nils

Lst paragraph. Text says that the panes in the following example drawing of a window with two panes are stacked horizontally.
It should say "vertically" since it's a vertical split.

In scripting/app.conf, the line
"send-keys -t development:1.1 'cd ~/devproject' C-m "
sends the cd command to the first pane of the first window... which is vim! It should be "send-keys -t development:1.2 'cd ~/devproject' C-m", as properly said in the prior page.--Paul

tmuxinator can be used on computers without Ruby installed. In the last sentence on that page, it reads “it does require a Ruby interpreter on your machine though, so it may not be something you’ll set up on every environment where you’d like to use tmux.” However, (at least) the recent version of tmuxinator has the `tmuxinator debug` command, which will output the shell commands that are generated by tmuxinator. This output can then be copied to any machine lacking Ruby and executed in stead of `tmuxinator start`.--Amir Yalon

When I try to use the maximizing and restoring panes shortcuts, the screen just flips completely and I can't see what I'm typing anymore. This is like that until I type exit and this is killed. The rest of my tmux session is normal then. I use tmux 1.9a. Is their an error in the Up and Down bindings? I copy pasted the rules in my .tmux.conf file and when I press C-a Up or Down. Everything is flipping.

In the paragraph discussing the synchronize-panes command, the sentence "... you can turn it off with set-window-option synchronize-panes on." should be "... set-window-option synchronize-panes off."

Amazon "location" 867 (may be relative to my reader) - there are no PDF page numbers on Kindle version - sorry; Chapter 3, Section 2. In the file scripting/app.conf (both in the book and via the code download URL (medi...com/titles/bhtmux/code/scripting/app.conf) have the 7th line as:
send-keys -t development:1.1 'cd ~/work/devproject' C-m
..if the intention is to have vim cd you need to send a ':' to get into command mode (otherwise you get an error from vim), so it should probably be:
send-keys -t development:1.1 ':cd ~/work/devproject' C-m
...with the colon before cd to get vim in command mode. At least that modification works on my machine taking the stock file from the url above. Maybe the author's vim is set up to launch in command mode; mine apparently is not.
