 2  Several conventions are used throughout jEdit's user interface and
 3  this manual. They will be described here. Macintosh users should note how their modifier keys map to the terms used in the manual.

 6  The <span><b class="guimenuitem">Scroll to Current
 7  Line</b></span> command contained in the
 8  <span><b class="guisubmenu">Scrolling</b></span> submenu of the <span><b class="guimenu">View</b></span> menu.

10  Menu items that end with
11  ellipsis (...) display dialog boxes.
12  </td></tr><tr><td><tt class="keycap">C</tt></td><td>
13   The primary modifier key in jEdit. On MacOS X, this is actually the
14   key known as &#8220;<span class="quote">Command</span>&#8221;. On most other keyboards, this key is
15   labelled &#8220;<span class="quote">Control</span>&#8221;.
16  </td></tr><tr><td><tt class="keycap">A</tt></td><td>
17   The secondary modifier key in jEdit. On MacOS X, this is actually the
18   key labelled &#8220;<span class="quote">Control</span>&#8221;. On most other keyboards, this key is
19   labelled &#8220;<span class="quote">Alt</span>&#8221;.
20  </td></tr><tr><td><tt class="keycap">S</tt></td><td>The standard &#8220;<span class="quote">Shift</span>&#8221; key.
21  </td></tr><tr><td><tt class="keycap">C+o</tt></td><td>
22  Refers to pressing and holding the <tt class="keycap">Control</tt> key, pressing and releasing <tt class="keycap">O</tt>, and finally releasing the <tt class="keycap">Control</tt> key.
23  </td></tr><tr><td><tt class="keycap">C+e C+j</tt></td><td>
24  Refers to holding down <tt class="keycap">Control</tt>, pressing <tt class="keycap">E</tt>, pressing <tt class="keycap">J</tt>, and releasing <tt class="keycap">Control</tt>.

26  Default buttons
27  </td><td>
28  In many dialog boxes, the default button (it has a heavy outline, or a
29  special border, depending on the current Swing look and feel) can be activated by
30  pressing <tt class="keycap">Enter</tt>. Similarly, pressing
31  <tt class="keycap">Escape</tt> will usually close a dialog box.
32  </td></tr><tr><td><tt class="keycap">Alt</tt>-key mnemonics
33  </td><td>
34  Some user interface elements (menus, menu items, buttons) have a
35  certain letter in their label underlined. Pressing this letter in combination
36  with the <tt class="keycap">Alt</tt> key activates the associated user interface
37  widget. Note that this functionality is not available on MacOS X with the &#8220;<span class="quote">MacOS Adaptive</span>&#8221; look and feel. See <a href="global-opts.html#appearance-pane" title="The Appearance Pane">the section called &#8220;The Appearance Pane&#8221;</a> for information on changing the look and feel.
38  </td></tr><tr><td>
39  Right mouse button
40  </td><td>
41  Used in jEdit to show context-sensitive menus. If you have a one button Macintosh mouse, a <tt class="keycap">Control</tt>-click has the same effect.
42  </td></tr><tr><td>
43  Middle mouse button
44  </td><td>
45  Used by the quick copy feature (see <a href="text-transfer.html#quick-copy" title="Quick Copy">the section called &#8220;Quick Copy&#8221;</a>). True 3-button mice are rare these days. If you have a wheel mouse, press down on the wheel without rolling it. On a Macintosh with a one-button mouse, <tt class="keycap">Option</tt>-click. On other platforms without a three-button mouse, <tt class="keycap">Alt</tt>-click.
