Transfer Bindings

TRANSFER

This is the virtual mouse button which may be used for data transfer and manipulation operations. On a two- or three-button Mouse, with separate Selection and Transfer, TRANSFER is always assigned to mouse button 2. On a one-, two-, or three-button Mouse, with Integrated Selection and Transfer, TRANSFER is always assigned to mouse button 1 (integrated with SELECT). In addition, on a three-button Mouse, with Integrated Selection and Transfer, TRANSFER may optionally be assigned to mouse button 2.
