I have two questions about qterminal:

1) I see there is a comand-line option "--profile: Load qterminal with specific options" but i see no way of defining profiles from the menu bar. Is there some other way? And what are the settable options?

2) I was wondering whether it would be possible to add an option to "Ask for Tab Closing Confirmation". There is already "Ask for Window Closing Confirmation" in Preferences / Look & Feel. My situation is that i use many tabs, each labeled with a single letter, so the red "close" button occupies one third of the tab width and is easy to hit accidentally...

Thanks.

Same here. That's really been my only problem with using Qterminal much more often.

4) I also noticed that CTRL-S and CTRL-Q do not work in the expected way (i.e., pause and resume terminal scrolling). Perhaps this could be added as well? As an option, perhaps?...

With respect to (1) above, i see in the source that there is provision to read a profile file when the --profile argument is passed, and there is also a Properties::saveSettings() method, but i cannot see any option from the qterminal menu that would invoke this method in order to save the current settings in a new session file...

I hope someone from the qterminal project is reading this thread and we are not typing in vain... :lol:
