Copy objects from point to point?

Recommended Posts

Not only is it not obvious, but the manual has no index entry for "right click" or "mouse buttons" or any other word that a user would conceivably look for when seeking how to implement this feature. Many things have improved with VW over the years, but the manual remains sadly inadequate - especially the index! How hard could it be . . .

Thanks P Retondo and bc:

I found it right there on page B-5 "Modifying Context Menus."

Ok, it's not really obvious (if I may rant for a moment). There's no mention of the right mouse button. They assume that Mac users don't have right mouse buttons. So they say "Ctrl-click." Say what?

Anyway it works and should save me lots of time.

Yeah, technically they are called "contextural menus" because they can change based on what is happening at the time. I guess if you are using a mac laptop, you still have only the single button and have to ctrl-click (or whatever). I agree that it is not that obvious if you dont know exactly what you are looking for. Just having the online docs java based screws with my Firefox.

It's a java issue with FF (, that I have for some reason (havent had time to really play with it). I actually get it to work in Safari, even though the Knowledge base says it wont. :-P

I keep a link off to the side of the desktop to open the help document.
