upload.verbose=true in mac os

this is probably more of a mac os question than an arduino question, but i'm trying to turn on verbose mode for uploading in the IDE

the problem is, it spits out all the output at the very end, whereas i would like to be able to reach the point where the programmer is trying to send code through the serial, so that i can hit reset at exactly the right time. in the windows IDE one can run the .bat file apparently, which spits out all the output into the console/command line, but i can't seem to do the same in Mac OS. any suggestions?
