Mouse chording in OS/2

(1/2) > >>

Ronald:
I'm trying to find info on how does mouse chording (copy/paste) work in OS/2.

Wikipedia mentions that it is possible to do using OS/2. But gives no specifics.

Example, taken from another OS: To «snarf» (copy), select a word and while holding left mouse button, click right mouse button.
                                                 To paste, unselect and place cursor, click then hold left mouse button, click right mouse button.
                                                 To Cut, select a word and while holding left mouse button, click middle mouse button.

Cheers!  :)

Remy:
Copy: Click and hold LMB at start or end of the words to select, move the cursor left or right until the word is selected and then RMB followed by release both button
Past: Click and hold RMB + LMB, release both

Ronald:
Can't get to work in Warp 3 nor 2.11.  :-\

Remy:
Do you use a PS/2 mouse or USB cordless mouse ?
I remember having always done like this since v3

Open an OS/2 cmd prompt window and try under it

Dave Yeo:
It has always worked for me as well, excepting the cut part, testing, it seems to work the same as copy.
Open E and test, or even a cmd prompt, where I think you need Mouse Actions active, click on the icon in the upper left of cmd to check if active.
