vim-togglemouse Project status

Installation

  1. Copy the file plugin/toggle_mouse.vim to your ~/.vim/plugin directory
  2. There is no step 2.

Usage

Press <F12> to toggle mouse focus between Vim and your terminal emulator, allowing terminal emulator mouse commands, like copy/paste.

Toggling restores the Vim 'mouse' option value to its previous value.

Customization

If you don't want to use the <F12> key for mouse toggling, remap it to another key. It autodetects whether it has been remapped and won't register the <F12> key if so.
