I can't go through the history on the command line using Ctrl-p, Ctrl-n, or any of the command line short-cut keys.  I looked in the preferences to see if there is a check box to enable/disable this (since the history window can provide a means to copy & paste past commands) but found none.  Although the history can be pulled into the current command line using the aforementioned technique, it's much more efficient & quick to go up the history using Ctrl-p for most cases.
