A Scripter's Notes

Emacs, scripting and anything text oriented.

tmux Shift+Mouse

In tmux, I had been missing the select and middle-click method for copying and pasting stuff in terminal using mouse.

Thanks to this post, I figured that I can use the Shift key and bypass the tmux copy and paste method.

  • Shift + Mouse left button double-click – Select word and copy it
  • Shift + Select using mouse – Copy the selection
  • Shift + Mouse middle button click – Paste the text copied using above method in the tmux terminal

I am using xterm, tcsh 6.18.01 and tmux 1.9a
