19. Using the Mouse
VM uses the following layout for the mouse buttons in the folder
and summary buffers.
- button-1 (left button usually)
- button-2 (middle button usually)
- Activate. If you click on a summary entry, that message will be
selected and become the current message. If you click on a
highlighted URL in the body of a message, that URL will be sent
to the browser specified by
- button-3 (right button usually)
- Context Menu. If the mouse pointer is over the contents of the
From header, button-3 pops up a menu of actions that can be taken
using the author of the message as a parameter. For instance,
you may want to create a virtual folder containing all the
messages in the current folder written by this author. If the
mouse pointer is over the contents of the Subject header, a menu
of actions to be performed on the current message's subject is
produced. If button-3 is clicked over a highlighted URL, a menu
of Web browsers is produced. Otherwise the normal VM mode
specific menu is produced.
In mail composition buffers only mouse button-3 is affected.
Context sensitive menus are produced when that button is clicked.
