Conventions and Terminology
This section discusses conventions and terminology used throughout this manual.
•
pointer—indicates where the mouse action is to occur
•
select—to push and hold down the left mouse button
•
release—to let up on a mouse button to initiate an action
•
click—to select and release a mouse button without moving the pointer
•
double-click—to click a mouse button twice quickly without moving the pointer
•
drag—to move the pointer by sliding the mouse with one or more buttons selected
The MPLS VPN Solution software supports a three-button mouse. The buttons are configured as
follows:
•
left button—selects objects and activates controls
•
middle button—adjusts a selected group of objects, adding to or deselecting part of the group
•
right button—displays and selects from menus
This manual uses this terminology throughout (even though it is possible for individual users to
customize their devices to use the buttons in an alternative manner).
In situations that allow more than one item to be selected from a list simultaneously, the following
actions are supported:
•
To select a single item in a list, click the entry. Clicking a second time on a previously selected entry
deselects it.
•
To select a contiguous block of items, click the first entry; then, without releasing the mouse button,
drag to the last desired entry and release. (A subsequent click anywhere on the screen deselects all
previous selections.)
•
To extend a currently selected block, hold the Shift key down and click the entry at the end of the
group to be added
•
To add a noncontiguous entry to the selection group, press the Ctrl (Control) key and click the entry
to be added.
Names of on-screen elements that you click or select (menu names, commands, and controls such as
buttons, drop-down lists, and so on) are printed in bold font.
