I can do this:

tmux set-option -g 'pane-border-format'

but when I do this:

tmux show-options -gv 'pane-border-format'

I just get the error:

unkown-option: pane-border-format

what gives? Why can I set it but not get it like you can with status-left or status-right


Pane options are apart of the window global options, thus it's best to use:

tmux showw -gv "pane-border-format"
  • tmux show -gw "pane-border-format"
