howto navigate between split panes in macbook pro terminal

hi Experts,

I just acquired a new macbook pro, running lion.
i want to have two terminal panes one below another.
I can split the terminal using shortcut cmd+d but i can't jump from one pane to another.
Can you please tell me what is the shortcut for doing this?

Thanks Experts

You CANNOT switch between panes in Terminal app in SPLIT mode.  
When you SPLIT the panes the cursor automatically moves to the lower pane and there is no way to move the cursor to the upper pane until you remove the split.
You can use Cmd + tab to move between panes

does not work unfortunately.
cmd+tab moves me between all the running applications, just like ALT TAB in windows.
what i want to do is switch between two panes of terminal app.

you can replicate my setup like below:
on mac OS lion, launch terminal app
press CMD+D to split the terminal app into two panes.
now i want to jump from bottom pane to the pane at the top and vice verse.

If you open a new window by pressing CMD+N, then you can switch between them by pressing CMD+} or CMD+{

Hope this helps

hi Andy,

i agree with you but that is not my question.

I do not want to open a new window and work in two terminal windows.
i want to split the terminal using CMD+D and then switch between those two panes.

Yes, I have discovered this too
