Cut And Paste Tweak ??

Hi,

Getting use to using this. I had a Linux workstation and now because of the need for certain programs need to use Windoze.

I am use to highlighting text and dragging and dropping it rather than ctrl c then ctrl v. Anyway to get this functionality with SecureCrt.

Also any way to make the default terminal for new and all sessions to be Linux rather than vt100 as its by default. I know I can do this per session of course and that would be ok. Just lazy I guess

Thanks!!

Francesca

I am not familiar with the drag and drop in Linux, but I am familiar with the ability to copy on select and paste on middle click. Is this the behavior you want?

If so, you can enable this behavior in the Mouse section of the Terminal category of the Global Options dialog.

It is possible to edit all existing sessions (and establish the default for future sessions) by modifying the Default Session in the General / Default Session category of the Global Options dialog.
  1. Make any desired changes to the Default Session (for example: changing the default terminal).
  2. Press the OK button
  3. You should be presented with the following warning:

    ---------------------------
    SecureCRT
    ---------------------------
    Do you want to apply the changes that you made to the default session to ALL of your sessions?



    WARNING: There is no UNDO for this change.


    ---------------------------
    Yes No
    ---------------------------
  4. If you want to make the changes to all existing sessions, press the Yes button.
Does this help to answer your questions?

Todd,

Thanks .. yes this helps answer my questions .. the middle click behavior is kinda annoying when using VI/VIM as clicking anywhere starts pasting the highlighted text in the wrong place.

Thanks Again!!

Francesca

Hi Francesca,

I am glad I could help answer your question.

After some additional research, perhaps setting the SecureCRT session emulation to "Xterm", and enabling mouse mode would help change the behavior that you are experiencing when using vim?

You can use the following command within vim to enable "mouse mode":
:set mouse=a
With mouse mode enabled, you should be able to precede each middle click with a left click to position the cursor where you need the text to be pasted. Does this help to make things easier when using vim?

Additionally, I have added this forum thread to a feature request in our SecureCRT development database to include an option to preceed a middle click with a left click when SecureCRT is in mouse mode to be more like the Linux cut and paste.

Should a future release of SecureCRT have this capability, we will post to this forum thread #3678. If you would like to be notified personally, please send an email to support@vandyke.com with a subject of Feature Request in Forum Thread #3678.
