Extras

This page allows you to download settings files that can be imported into the Preferences window of MacTerm.  They are broken down by category; for instance, macro sets make it easier to use certain key sequences or programs, and formats give you more color schemes.


Formats

Note that if you click these files, your web browser might attempt to display them; if necessary, use a contextual menu on the links and save them directly.

You can drag any number of these files to the MacTerm Dock icon and have them all imported into the correct category automatically (regardless of which category is currently displayed in the Preferences window).  Alternately, use the “Import from File…” command in the “+” pop-up menu in the Preferences window.

Default color schemes will be installed when MacTerm creates new preferences or when there are no custom items in your list of Formats.  If you deleted the originals or have old preferences, you can download the files below to recreate any of the original color schemes.

The Standard Colors pane (16 base colors) is not set for every color scheme below; many of them are configured to simply inherit from the Default because basic colors work well in most schemes.  If you have customized your Default Format to set a new 16-color palette in Standard Colors, you may also want to tweak the appearance of Standard Colors in certain imported sets.

More color schemes:  The newest versions of MacTerm can import ".itermcolors" files as well, and dozens of these are available online from various web sites such as http://www.iterm2colorschemes.com/.


Macro Sets

Note that if you click these files, your web browser might attempt to display them; if necessary, use a contextual menu on the links and save them directly.

You can drag these files to the MacTerm Dock icon and have them imported into the correct category automatically (regardless of which category is frontmost).  Alternately, use the “Import from File…” command in the pop-up menu of the “+” button in the Preferences window.

GNUScreenCommands.plist
An example macro set that defines short-cuts for several common commands in the GNU screen program.
VT220KeysF1-F10.plist
Macros that map the first 10 function keys of the VT220 keyboard to use ⌘⌥F1, etc.
VT220KeysF11-F20.plist
Macros that map the last 10 function keys of the VT220 keyboard to use ⌘⌥F1, etc.
VT220KeysSpecial.plist
Macros that map the VT220 Find, Insert, Delete, Select, Page Up and Page Down sequences to the keyboard.  When using this scheme, it is important to take note of the key mappings in the macro set; if you do not want the chosen keys to be redefined, edit the mappings after importing the file.
