Upgrading from 3.3.10beta1 to 3.3.10beta2 changed option key mapping in default profile
Thanks for filing an issue! Please answer the questions below so I can help you.
- iTerm2 version: 3.3.10beta2
- OS version: 10.15.3 (19D76)
- com.googlecode.iterm2.plist (before upgrade)
- com.googlecode.iterm2.plist (after upgrade)
After upgrading from iTerm2 3.3.10beta1 to 3.3.10beta2, the key mapping for the left and right option key changed from "Normal" to "Esc+", without any user intervention.
After noticing that the option key was no longer working as expected, I quit iTerm and it alerted me, that the preferences had changed and needed to be synced to Dropbox.
So digging through the preferences I noticed that the Preferences -> Profiles -> Default -> Keys -> Left and Right Option Key settings had both switched from "Normal" to "Esc+".
Other profiles still had the "Normal" setting.
Diffing the old and new preferences file showed that
<key>Option Key Sends</key> had changed from
What should have happened:
The mapping of the option keys should not change on uggrade.
