Depeche View hotkeys and function reference

The list of all functions available through the Depeche View GUI.

General Depeche View Input Scheme

   SHIFT    Key + Mouse Button selects for SEARCH.
   CONTROL  Key + Mouse Button selects for COPY.
   ALT      Key + Mouse Button selects for BOOKMARKING.

   LEFT MOUSE BUTTON    operates in the CURRENT View (Window).
   RIGHT MOUSE BUTTON   sends something into the NEARBY View.
                        NEARBY means the view to the right,
                        or if there is none, the leftmost.
   MIDDLE MOUSE BUTTON  sends something into the LEFT SIDE View.
                        If there is none, it sends to the rightmost.

   A view can send into another view:
            -  a phrase search
            -  a bookmark location
            -  a filtered view line selection.
