14. Maximising Terminal Bliss in Mavericks.

For some reason with the Mavericks update, the terminal now copies text to the clipboard with the format of your current terminal font/colors, etc. This is absurd, because the terminal is text, plain and simple. Moreover, I often use the terminal as a clipboard, pasting in some text to get rid of some formatting.

Thankfully I found this defaults mod to change Terminal’s behaviour, so that when you copy to the clipboard all that goes is the text and no formatting:

defaults write com.apple.Terminal CopyAttributesProfile com.apple.Terminal.no-attributes
