  7  Several conventions are used throughout jEdit's user interface and

 75  In many dialog boxes, the default button (it has a heavy outline, or a
 76  special border, depending on the current Swing look and feel) can be activated by
 77  pressing <keycap>Enter</keycap>. Similarly, pressing
 78  <keycap>Escape</keycap> will usually close a dialog box.

 86  Some user interface elements (menus, menu items, buttons) have a
 87  certain letter in their label underlined. Pressing this letter in combination
 88  with the <keycap>Alt</keycap> key activates the associated user interface
 89  widget. Note that this functionality is not available on MacOS X with the <quote>MacOS Adaptive</quote> look and feel. See <xref linkend="appearance-pane" /> for information on changing the look and feel.

105  Used by the quick copy feature (see <xref linkend="quick-copy"/>). 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, <keycap>Option</keycap>-click. On other platforms without a three-button mouse, <keycap>Alt</keycap>-click.
