Mouse and keyboard combination actions

These actions are used to select signals. To perform these actions, press and hold the designated key, perform the mouse action, then release the key.

\Ovalbox{\small\sf Shift}+left mouse button
Select the signal nearest the pointer (the selected signal is highlighted, and its signal number is entered into the Signal field in the Analyze window). This action can also be performed using \Ovalbox{\small\sf Shift}+ \Ovalbox{\small\sf $\leftarrow$}.

\Ovalbox{\small\sf Ctrl}+left mouse button
Select the signal nearest the pointer as above, and also enter it into the Signal list field in the Analyze window. This action can also be performed using \Ovalbox{\small\sf Shift}+ \Ovalbox{\small\sf $\leftarrow$}.

\Ovalbox{\small\sf Meta}+left mouse button
Select the signal nearest the pointer as above, but delete it from the Signal list. (There is no keyboard-only equivalent.)

(Most keyboards do not have a key labelled Meta. On most Sun keyboards, the Meta keys look like this: \Ovalbox{\small\sf $\Diamond$}; they flank the space bar. On most other keyboards, the \Ovalbox{\small\sf Alt} key is equivalent to Meta.)
