I've just been given a MacBook (Mojave) by my employer and I'm really struggling to get to grips with the terminal. I've been a Linux user for years and am always in the terminal.
I've tried a number of different terminals; Terminal, ITerm2 and Alacritty and so far I've not been able to work out how to do the most basic text selection operations without having to reach for the mouse.
With ITerm2 I have actually managed to get word selection working but not selecting from the cursor to the start/end of line or cutting of the selection.
I've seen on the Internet some other people (but surprisingly few) asking similar questions and the answer they got was that it's just not possible. I'm struggling to accept that this can be the case - and the fact that not many people seem to be screaming out about this is making me wonder if the people asking this question (including me) are somehow misconfigured.
Text selection operations work fine for me outside of the terminal, e.g. in a text editor.
Can anyone help?
