Permanently allow pasting of control characters
- iTerm2 version: 3.4.3
- OS version: 11.1
In reality ... I've been using version 188.8.131.5230319 forever and can't move off because of some pasting issues with newer versions. After updating to OSX 11.1 there are random scroll issues where scroll doesn't appear (switching back and forth in tabs fixes it). To get past this I'd like to get on a modern version but my issue is:
I use screen for all of my shell work and I copy screen commands from my browser to my clipboard that include screen commands. i.e. "^a 1 ^p 2 ls xxx" and this is quite useful for productivity. But, the only way to be able to paste these things in modern iterm2 versions is to do and advanced paste then click the Paste button. This is a non-starter in that it's time and click intensive. Is there any way to permanently tell iterm2 to allow the pasting of control characters in the normal paste operation?
