I just started using zsh and oh-my-zsh in the default macOS terminal. When using

$ ls

(or related commands like la or ll) names of directories are displayed in bold font. Is there a possibility to disable bold fonts for zsh, e.g. in .zshrc? Also I'm interested in a possibility to change to color of the printed directory names.


In both Terminal and iTerm there is a switch in Preferences to turn off bold fonts. This is shown for terminal here:


And for iTerm here:


Go to Terminal menu item or the iTerm2 menu item and click on preferences.
