When I am working, I frequently switch between my MuPDF window and kak window where a TEX file is open. I need a mouse to scroll, zoom in and zoom out of the PDF file open in MuPDF and when I am done, I click anywhere within the terminal to bring it to focus so that I can start typing. In Vim, mouse is off my default so my cursor position doesn’t change and I just start typing.
In Kak, the cursor changes from the previous position to the position where I clicked my mouse. Kak is not Pluma/Gedit. I don’t want to move my mouse to that position, I just want to bring my Terminal into focus.
g. takes me to my last buffer edit but not the last cursor position. I find it annoying to manually go back to the last position. So, how can I disable the mouse?
Many of Kak users are Vim refugees not Gedit’s, Kak has powerful (multi) selection tools that works better with keyboard than with the mouse, and many also hate the mouse. So, can we please get rid of the mouse support globally as a default?
P.S. Also, is it possible in Kak to go back to the last cursor position? I was a Vim user and by the force of habit, I frequently type
x instead of
d when I want to delete something. The
x selects the whole line and I lose my position. (I have to press
l keys several times to reach the position I was in.) This is particularly annoying when editing TEX files where the lines are very very long.
