Several of your profiles are missing GUIDs which is technically against the schema, you should generate some random ones and throw them in there.

Was just testing yours as a sample against my updated "strong typed" version of MSTerminalSettings powershell module :)

Thomas, please fix as soon as you can.
I'm new to WT. I just want to do simple things like customizing fonts & backgrounds.
Bings put your blog piece to the top of search result "Windows Terminal JSON Settings"

Also fix lines like these "C:/Users/thoma/OneDrive/Pictures/Me/Thomas Maurer Logos 2016/WindowsTerminal/Black Cloud Robot.png"

It's irritating (to me) that codes that's supposed to work as is but don't.

Windows Terminal can't parse this file:

Settings could not be reloaded from file. Check for syntax errors, including trailing commas.
* Line 153, Column 10
  Missing '}' or object member name

Temporarily using the Windows Terminal default settings.

I suspect the error message doesn't reflect the actual problem.

How should I be testing? Here's what I've done:

  1. Clicked Settings in the Windows Terminal (opens settings.json in an editor)
  2. Replace the contents of the opened file with the contents of your file
  3. Save file

When I save the file, Windows Terminal immediately pops up a "Failed to reload settings" dialog with the text I mentioned previously. I wondered whether it could have something to do with the hardcoded paths in your file, but it seems to be a parse error, so I doubt it's that. It always reports the error on the line containing the closing ] of the first array.

I just noticed I get a similar error if I paste the contents of "defaults.json" (obtained by clicking Alt > Settings) into "settings.json". This makes me wonder whether there could be a file encoding or format issue (e.g., unix vs dos). The files are being opened automatically in Visual Studio. I'll probably try to change the default to open in Vim so I can easily experiment with various formats.
