These actions are used to select, insert, change, and move annotations.
- left mouse button click
- If the Annotation Template is visible or iconified, select the
annotation to the left of the pointer (if this annotation is not in
the signal window, recenter the signal window on it). Otherwise,
display the Annotation Template.
- middle mouse button click
- Insert an annotation at the location indicated by the pointer, with fields as
specified in the Annotation Template. If the pointer is within
the selection rectangle, the selected annotation is replaced by the
inserted one; in this case, if the Type is `.' (deleted
annotation), the selected annotation is marked for deletion. An
annotation so marked can be restored by deleting it again.
- right mouse button click
- Select the annotation to the right of the pointer (if this annotation
is not in the signal window, recenter the signal window on it).
If the pointer is moved during any of the simple mouse actions above, the
selected annotation (if any) is dragged along with the pointer.
When the button is released, the selected annotation is dropped
at the new location.
Even if editing is disabled, you may insert, delete, or move `:', `<', and `>' markers using these mouse actions (or
their keyboard equivalents, below) if you first set the Type
field of the Annotation Template to the desired marker type.
If you prefer not to have the Annotation Template visible while
editing, you can iconify it so that it will not continually pop up
whenever you click left.
