  9    this manual. They will be described here. Macintosh users should note how

 90                    <entry>Some user interface elements (menus, menu items,
 91                    buttons) have a certain letter in their label underlined.
 92                    Pressing this letter in combination with the
 93                    <keycap>Alt</keycap> key activates the associated user
 94                    interface widget. Note that this functionality is not

103                    <entry>Used in jEdit to show context-sensitive menus. If you
104                    have a one button Macintosh mouse, a
105                    <keycap>Control</keycap>-click has the same effect.</entry>

111                    <entry>Used by the quick copy feature (see <xref
112                    linkend="quick-copy" />). True 3-button mice are rare these
113                    days. If you have a wheel mouse, press down on the wheel
114                    without rolling it. On a Macintosh with a one-button mouse,
115                    <keycap>Option</keycap>-click. On other platforms without a
116                    three-button mouse, <keycap>Alt</keycap>-click.</entry>
