Can't get rid of arrow from start of prompt #5088
I haven't modified any themes, it happens with every theme no matter which I use. Here is my .zshrc
Also, I'm not sure if it matters, but I'm using Mac El Capitan
That doesn't look like a character that OMZ itself is printing, but a prompt decoration displayed by the terminal, like El Capitan's Terminal.app, or the new iTerm2 version 3 beta. (This one in particular looks like the beta iTerm 3's "Marks" feature.)
What terminal emulator are you using? If it's iTerm, you can turn it off by going in to Preferences > Profiles > (your profile) > Terminal, scroll down to "Shell Integration", and turn off "Show mark indicators".
Mark indicators may only be shown with some themes, because (I think) it's up to the prompt string, which is controlled by the theme, to emit a terminal control sequence indicating the start of a command prompt. This lets the terminal ensure that the prompt is displayed on a new line.
