    hi all,
    snow leopard terminal preferences seems to only change the first terminal window opened. for example i have new windows set to open with 'pro' theme, only the first window does this. if i hit cmd-n for a new window, it's the basic theme with the default size. i assume this is a bug.

    if anyone knows the commands i can throw in .bash_profile to change the bg color and size of window, please let me know, i guess that's the workaround.

    preferences > settings
    select the theme you want
    go to the window tab and select the size you want
    make it the default by hitting "default" below the list of themes.

    Terminal-Preferences-Settings. Set the window design you prefer and click the Default button at the bottom.
