I find it annoying and get no use from it. Here's a picture of what I'm talking about:
The bell is a visual indicator that the terminal bell "ringed".
You can disable it on a profile by orofile basis in the "Preferences" pane
Menu: Profiles | Open Profiles | Edit Profiles... | Terminal
in the "Notifications" section uncheck "Show bell icon in tabs"
This is behavior is controlled via the Show bell icon in tabs preference mentioned earlier, but if changing that setting doesn't appear to do anything, you may have a corrupt preferences file or cache. Please try the following:
- quit Iterm2
- open Apple's Terminal (in /Applications/Utilities)
- delete the following two items:
- re-launch Iterm2
- re-disable Show bell icon in tabs in Preferences > Profile > Terminal
Re-test to determine if issue is resolved.
