Which version did you test? I have iTerm2 3.0.15 and italic
definitely works (just tested again now), and on
Preferences/Profiles/Text there's a checkbox that says "Italic text
allowed". I *think* I never changed the default profile (I have a
custom one) and it is enabled in my box.

looking again, I see the setting (I was looking for "Font"...).
I'm certain that I did not change it - see attached screenshot.

Of course, documentation (i.e., a manual listing the default settings)
would be useful.  I was reading the sources, found no documentation
aside from a couple of readme's and program comments.

I'm not a Mac developer, so I may be misinterpreting this, but I found these two places which may be the defaults:



But just for the sake of argument and my own understanding of your reasoning, if we assume that the default for the setting is "off", what would be the drawback of adding the italic sequences to terminfo? The end result would still be that italic wouldn't work for people who haven't enabled the setting (so no change there), but it would work otherwise (which is a plus). What am I missing from this trade-off?
