- Name it, e.g., Personal.
- Change font to Menlo 14 pt (a full Unicode anti-aliased font)
- Switch OFF "Use bold fonts"
- Switch ON "Use bright colors for bold text"
- Adjust any other settings and make this your default theme.
- Make sure xterm-color is set in advanced options
(it's on by default for Pro theme, so its duplicate should have it).

export CLICOLOR LSCOLORS
> Do you redefine what RGB values correspond to yellow and blue are in the terminal?No. I only change the text color in terminal preferences to light grey (75% brightness) so that it's different from the bold text color (white). I also switch off transparency (i.e., set opacity to 100%) for sharper text.

Make sure to set background=dark in your vim settings or color theme.
