When I launch my Terminal app, it starts in a Basic mode. I'd like to do a few things:

  1. Change default to "Pro"
  2. Control how Terminal is started .. For example, i'd like to either use my keyboard or LaunchBar to bring first terminal as Pro, second as Ocean etc

Please advise.

As far as number one, in Terminal preferences, select the settings tab, select "Pro", and click the default button.
