Running Console 2.00b144 on Vista 32-bit. Everything looks good, except I can't select text. Tried left mouse button but nothing happens. System Locale is Simplified Chinese, maybe this is a problem?
Same problem here. Console 2.00.144, Vista 32-bit. Can't select text. Left-click just seems to have no effect. Middle click will successfully paste if I have something copied from another app, and right click brings up the context as expected.
My locale is a basic US/English.
Did you try pressing Scroll Lock to change mode?
Duh, Scroll Lock is for changing from cursor scroll to command history.
I meant to say pressing SHIFT at the same time as trying to left-click select.
Make sure Left+Shift is set as the action for Select Text, in the Prefs>Hotkeys>Mouse
I think this is probably the largest "surprise" of console--unlike putty it doesn't allow text selection by default. Any chance to get it changed to become the default?
What do you mean by 'it doesn't allow text selection by default'? The default mouse binding is SHIFT+left click. I could change the default mouse binding.
You got it exactly.
Changing the default would be very welcome to newbies like myself. (i.e. select text's default is just left drag).
IIRC, most terminals (except in Windows) allows selection of text just dragging the left mouse button. I stumble with this thread because of that. OK my fault: I'd better RTFM.
Just my 0.02
