Manage Hotspots Dialog Box

Hotspots files allow you to use your mouse to interact with your terminal session. When you create a terminal session document, it includes a pointer to a default, built-in hotspots file. You can choose a different hotspots file for each session, and you can create custom hotspots files with the settings you prefer.

NOTE:A mouse map provides additional ways to control the way your mouse works in a terminal session.

Select another hotspots file

Click to choose a different hotspots file from a list of existing hotspots files. The file must be in a trusted location.

Modify the currently selected hotspots file

Select to modify the hotspots file used by this session. Because built-in files are read-only, if the currently selected file is a built-in file, it will be saved as a custom file when you change it.

Create a new hotspots file from an existing hotspots file

Click to create a custom hotspots file based on an existing hotspots file. To reopen the file later, it must be saved in a trusted location.
