I've configured a fullscreen hotkey window as follows

enter image description here

If I hit the hotkey when the current desktop is a native full screen app, before opening the hotkey window, the desktop is changed to the first, free (not fullscreen) desktop.

Is there a way to prevent that? I want terminal to just open as an overlay without the annoying desktop change animation.

Using iTerm2 Build 3.4.4

You need to make it a floating window so it can overlap fullscreen windows of other apps: enter image description here

  • This is in Profiles -> Keys -> Configure Hotkey Window
