Dear list -
David Kaplan added a very cool new feature to add labels to a contour plots
Check out the ginput_manual_clabel.py example.
I posted a question about this before, because I couldn't figure out how to
end the manual selection of label positions.
The doc string (and the example) says to press the middle mouse button or
potentially both mouse buttons together.
Many laptops don't have a middle mouse button. I have read that pushing both
buttons together mimics the middle button on some machines. Not on mine or
any others I have seen.
The trick (at least on my machine) is to configure the touchpad such that
some corner acts as the middle button.
You can do that in the settings of the touchpad (on my XP laptop, under
settings, control panel, mouse, then select device settings and settings;
select tap zones and check to enable tap zones; then select which corner you
want and select the action 'middle mouse button')
I hope this works for everybody. Great new feature!
ps. I have asked David whether ending manual positions of labels could be
done with the right mouse button instead. He's on vacation now, so we'll see
what he says when he gets back.
