Re: Left Mouse click = plus sign?

Hi John,

Recent versions of vDosPlus introduce a feature to convert left and right
mouse clicks to keyboard presses when you have MOUSE=OFF,
customizable via the CLICKMOD config option. The default
value in the standard vDosPlus installation is CLICKMOD=1,4
(i.e. left mouse clicks are converted into Enter keys, and
right mouse clicks are converted into ESC keys), but the
default value in the vDosPlus XyWrite installation is
CLICKMOD=0,0 (i.e. the feature is disabled). Based on
the behavior you just described, you must have CLICKMOD=1,4
and MOUSE=OFF, and you have customized the Enter key to
output the " " sign in Xy3. If you don't need the feature
to convert left and right mouse clicks into keyboard presses,
then you can either set CLICKMOD=0,0 or MOUSE=ON in config.txt.
Or, you can change the keyboard presses to be converted by
customizing the CLICKMOD config option; you will find more
information about this in config.txt. Hope this helps.

With a setting of AUHIDEMS = ON, I find that left mouse click

Am not using any of the recently introduced modifications for copying
and pasting text.

So, whenever focus is returned to the vdosplus window with a mouse click,
it enters a plus sign into the current document.

Any way to prevent this?  Thanks all.
