|Summary||0006672: Right mouse button should pop up menu by default.|
It seems that many of us immediately swap the mouse buttons when we get a new image. Could we standardise on the following in image releases:
- Left mouse button selects or does left mouse button stuff.
- Middle mouse button pops up halos.
- Right mouse button pops up a Context menu.
The middle mouse button on modern mice is the scroll wheel, which is more difficult to push and so should be used for less-often used actions. I think most people would want context menus more often than halos.
We aren't all lucky enough to have Acorn machines with three real buttons :-).

|Changing the VM preference (either in squeak.ini or by using the host window menu and choosing VM Preferences->Mouse Mapping->3 button mouse (which writes the squeak.ini entry for you) helps. Though is not the default VM setting... Haven't tested with running the same image on Linux to see if the swapMouseButtons preference should be on or off for both yet...|

It would be really nice if all the VMs supported the same button order by default. I don't think I care what it is, as you can swap it back in the image if you like. But images should be movable across platforms without having to mess about with VM preferences to swap buttons.

I'm horrified to see that this has been adopted. The world has gone insane.
At least it is an option that can be corrected by those of us with taste, discernment and properly trained reflexes. Now I'll have to work out how to make it properly set machine specific preference for RISC OS. Sigh.
