I'm using Mac + iTerm + Zsh + Vim as my primary setup and wonder whether Tmux can fit in. I've learned basics of tmux. But when I try to put it in use, I feel it hurts my productivity. I listed the pros and cons I felt against Tmux vs iTerm and wonder if there are good solutions or workarounds for the problems I had with Tmux. Any feedback will be highly appreciated.
Can use keyboard for everything
Extra steps required when starting/stopping terminal (iTerm has tmux integration, I'm not sure how good it works)
Require two key strokes for operations like switching to tabs and panes
Copy/paste between vim, tmux and os
Quick switch between tabs and panes
