Terminal actions don't respect chosen Terminal app

Post by spacek33z » Sat Jun 14, 2014 8:58 pm

Hi,

In the settings I've set Preferred Terminal application to iTerm, but when I want to use a terminal action such as New terminal at Folder it opens the ugly default Terminal app. Is there any way to change this?

Edit:
Apparently it's also possible to do this via a workflow.
If you're interested in this you can download my workflow.

"New Terminal at Folder" is an OS X Service provided by Terminal.app. Therefore, invoking this particular service always opens a window in Terminal.

In contrast, LaunchBar's "Open Terminal Here" action (⌘T) considers the "Preferred Terminal application" preference.
