Mouse Mode

When the terminal does not have a mouse, uses the keypad  to simulate one. MOUSE-MODE appears in the command/status window during this simulation. To enter mouse  mode, press the MOUSE MOUSE } key; to leave it, press DIAG DIAG }. When the system is in mouse mode the screen cursor shows the position of the mouse cursor; the position of the normal cursor is remembered (though not shown) and is restored when mouse mode is left. Only the keypad keys are meaningful in mouse mode, and they have meanings similar to (though different from) their usual ones; the exact meanings are given below. gif
