After transitioning from Terminal to iTerm 2, you may notice commands like ⌥ + ← (moves left one word) and ⌘ + ← (moves to the beginning of the line) no longer work.
It is very simple process to add the keyboard shortcuts to your profile. Here are the keyboard shortcuts we are adding:
|⌥ + ←||Move one word to the left|
|⌥ + →||Move one word to the right|
|⌘ + ←||Move to the beginning of the line|
|⌘ + →||Move to the end of the line|
1. Open Preferences
2. Click on Profiles

+ sign to add a new shortcut key.

Congratulations, you can now move around in iTerm 2 just like Terminal!
