Is iTerm2 not following a symlink of its plist?
- iTerm2 version: Build 3.3.0
- OS version: 10.15 (19A487m)
Detailed steps to reproduce the problem:
- Launch iTerm2
- Make changes
- Changes got added to $HOME/Library/Preferences/com.googlecode.iterm2.plist
- Close iTerm2
- Create a symlink of that file (privately I did run
mackup backupwhich stored the original file at: "$HOME/Library/CloudStorage/iCloud Drive/Documents/Preferences/dotfiles/Library/Preferences/com.googlecode.iterm2.plist")
- Open iTerm2
iTerm2 reverts back to default settings. Any new changes made are not saved to the
.plist. It seems like iTerm2 is not following symlinks for its configuration? I could swear this used to work but until now sticked by using the "Load preferences from ..." variant.
What should have happened:
