Right-Clicking & Pop-up menus on the Mac
« on: October 03, 2005, 12:11:22 AM »

Many of you will already be familiar with this, but it comes up frequently enough that it might be worth to create a sticky:

aMule contains a lot of features that are only accessible through pop-up menus, which you invoke by right-clicking a certain item. For instance, if you want to pause or cancel a download, change the upload or download priority of a file, see file details, etc. you need to do this via a right-click.

If you haven't bought an additional multi-button mouse with your Mac, you only have one mouse button (the one that corresponds to a left-click or "normal" click on a multi-button mouse). Fortunately, you can emulate the second button by holding down the control-key on the keyboard while you click. For example, do a "control-click" now on a file that you are downloading and see how a pop-up menu shows up with further option.

If you want to discover all of aMule's hidden functionalities just try to control-click everything that moves. ;)
This includes all the lists of files, clients & servers, all the labels on the top of these lists (e.g. "File Name"), the bar "all" at the top of the download window, ...

By the way, these emulated right-clicks work system-wide. Just try control-clicking a file in the Finder, an icon in the Dock, a marked word in TextEdit or MS Word.
Current aMule CVS builds for OS X can be found here.
