Tabbed Terminal alternative

That is my number one complaint too. I would also it if you could press mouse 3 (scrollwhell) to paste again. I've been in *nix far too long to remember pressing cmd+c

Tabbed Terminal alternative
Authored by: BobHarris on May 03, '06 05:20:33PM

While I use iTerm and its automatic "Copy" when you select something, I still have a Terminal.app running and I have the need to copy/paste in other applications.

My solution is a 4 button Logitech iClick mouse. The left and right buttons are the standard click and control-click. The scroll wheel can be clicked and I have it mapped to Command-C (copy). The 4th button I have mapped to Command-V (paste).

It is not ideal, but it does make it easier over all.

One more thing. Terminal.app allows you to select text and then drag and drop the selected text. I do use this from time to time, but for the most part, I stick with my mouse button mappings.
