IntelliTerm



 


Although the mouse is not required with 3270 or 5250 mode, it is a very important tool to facilitate many day-to-day functions. For example, clicking the left mouse button anywhere on the 3270 screen will move the cursor to that location.

To learn the basic editing procedures, follow the steps below:

1

To move text, pressing the left mouse button, select the text and drag the pointer to the new location where you want to move the block of text. The pointer location will be at the upper left hand corner of the block of text. When you release the left mouse button, the text will be moved to the new location. (The previous text is only deleted if the fields containing the data were unprotected.)

2

To copy a block of text using the mouse, first select the text. Then press the Ctrl key and the left mouse button and drag the text where you want it inserted. Make sure that you release the mouse button before releasing the Ctrl key or the copy will not work properly.

3

To cut the text to the clipboard, select the text and press Ctrl-X. The program will only delete the text on the screen if it appears in unprotected fields. To copy the text to the clipboard, select the text and press Ctrl-C. Once in the clipboard, you can move the cursor to the specified location on the screen and press Ctrl-V to paste the text in the clipboard back to the screen.

4

To copy the entire 3270 or 5250 screen to the clipboard, first press Ctrl+Numpad 5. (Numpad 5 is the 5 key in the keypad area. The NumLock must be off for this combination.) Then press Ctrl-C to copy the screen to the clipboard. Again, once in the clipboard, you can move the cursor to any location on the screen and press Ctrl-V to paste the text in the clipboard back to the screen.

You can select the highlighting method in the Session Profile dialog box. It can be a reverse highlight block or a rubber-band style selector box.

Light Pen Emulation
