Terminator is an advanced terminal emulator, which is a great proposition for people who often work in many terminals and do not use tiling window managers such as i3wm, awesome or dwm.

  • tabs
  • change of terminal arrangement (drag and drop and shortcuts)
  • many keyboard shortcuts
  • saving multiple layouts and profiles using the GUI preferences editor
  • simultaneous writing to any terminal groups (broadcasting)

Some keyboard shortcuts related to panel management:

SHIFT + CTRL + O – split horizontally
SHIFT + CTRL + E – split vertically
ALT + arrows – move directly between terminals, similarly CTRL + SHIFT + TAB and CTRL + SHIFT + N or CTRL + SHIFT + P

CTRL + SHIFT + arrows – change the size of the terminal (panel)
Super + R / Super + SHIFT + R – change the mutual position of the panels (terminals) clockwise or counterclockwise
CTRL + SHIFT + W – close terminal (panel)
CTRL + + – increase font size (also ctrl + mouse wheel)
CTRL + - – decrease font size (also ctrl + mouse wheel)
CTRL + 0 – restore original font size
