iTerm2 Font Resizing

Jan 5, 2021

Author: Brandon B. Jozsa

It's happened to all of us when we first start using iTerm2. Someone on your conference bridge said they can't see what you're typing. So you adjust the font using your quick keys, ⌘+ for increase and ⌘- for decrease. But now you need to use your mouse to reduce the window size. This looks bad during your call...it's frustrating...and we've all been there at one point.

By default, iTerm2 has this annoying option selected: "Adjust window when changing font size". Uncheck this option and try again.

Pretty easy fix, right? I hope this was helpful to someone out there. If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comment section below!
