Mouse commands

Copy and Paste
By default dvtm captures mouse events to provide the actions listed below. Unfortunatelythis interferes with the standard X copy and paste mechanism. To work around thisyou need to hold down SHIFT while selecting or pasting text. Alternatively you candisable mouse support at compile time, or use Mod-M to toggle mouse support dynamically.
Button1 click
Select window.
Button1 double click
Select window and toggle maximization.
Button2 click
Zooms/cycles current window to/from master area.
Button3 click

CUSTOMIZATION

dvtm is customized by creating a custom config.h and (re)compiling the sourcecode. This keeps it fast, secure and simple.
