Image Window Context (Right-click) Menu

Clicking the right mouse button anywhere in an image window causes a pop up menu (also called a context menu) to appear. The entries in this menu can vary depending on which MaxIm DL command is currently being executed, if any, and in some cases on exactly where in the image you clicked.

The menu contains commands to manipulate the circular cursor described in Mouse and Keyboard Operations, configure the way in which the image is displayed, and fine-tune the pointing of an attached telescope. Other functions appropriate to the current activity may also be included; context menu entries of this kind are described along with the MaxIm DL command that places them there.

The following items are usually displayed:

Other items will appear depending on the context; for example, if you right-click on an annotation while they are being edited, different options will be presented.
