I must have hit some keystrokes which got me stuck in full screen mode and there are no resize icons when you over mouse at top of screen even though the task bar shows up. How do I get out of full screen without restarting iTerm?

This was probably how I got stuck there in the first place. You can toggle full screen mode with the ⌘ Command⏎ Enter keyboard shortcut.

    There's a limited subset of HTML tags allowed on StackExchange In this case, you can encode your key within the <kbd></kbd> tag. As for the "places mark" (the clover) and the Enter key symbol, press Control-Command-Space to bring up the "characters selector", search for them and insert as needed. I suggest adding the ones you use most to your favorites.

    alternatively, set the whole string as a replacement in keyboard/text. I use simply ksomething, so kcmd generates <kbd> Cmd ⌘ </kbd> etc
