iTerm2 Tips

1. Mouseless copy

  • Cmd f then
  • tab to select then
  • Cmd c to copy

2. Jump to Session Hotkey

  • Session > Edit Session
  • Under General set a hotkey
  • Now, if you’re in a different tab, or even a different Mac application, you can jump to that session using that Hotkey. I used Cmd i – yet to find any conflicts…


3. changing text colours

iTerm2 > Preferences > Profiles (create a copy of your default profile and make it Default) > Colors

Note: changes won’t affect current session unless you create a new one as the new profile won’t affect it.

Not: Preferences > Appearance or Preferences > Profiles > Text (both seem pretty reasonable, right?)
