My normal terminal color scheme is set via a color preset in iTerm. When I open a terminal window in Vim (:terminal) that color scheme doesn't get applied, presumably because Vim has no knowledge of it and instead falls back to the settings in my .bashrc file. Is there a way I can fix this and make the Vim terminal window use the same scheme as my normal terminal?

    Idk anything about how iTerm colorschemes work, but in Terminal.app the colorscheme is applied to application windows. Vim just displays text in a :terminal—the application or program might color it with escapes and predetermined backgrounds.
