Select and Mark Text on a Terminal Screen

Reflection provides two different styles for selecting and marking text on the terminal screen, using either your keyboard or your mouse.

You can select and mark any rectangular area on the screen, or you can select and mark contiguous lines on the screen. Depending on your terminal type and configuration, one or the other will be the default behavior for your terminal sessions.

To select and mark text on the screen

  • When using the mouse, to use the non-default behavior, hold down the CTRL key while dragging the mouse.


  • When using a keyboard, to change the default behavior, select the Screen Selection (Keyboard) action in the Keyboard Mapper, and then choose either Rectangular Block or Contiguous Lines.
