Terminal Settings

You can modify various Terminal settings from the Codio->Preferences menu.

The available settings (and their defaults) are listed below. Preferences can be modified at the User level as described here. You can also force settings at the Project level but these will then override for all users looking at this project, so should be used sparingly.
