7.2 Selecting Xrefs

The following table lists the Info commands which operate on menu items.

1 (menu-digit)
29
M-1, vi-like operation
M-2M-9, vi-like operation

Within an Info window, pressing a single digit, (such as ‘1’), selects that menu item, and places its node in the current window. For convenience, there is one exception; pressing ‘0’ selects the last item in the node’s menu. When ‘--vi-keys’ is in effect, digits set the numeric argument, so these commands are remapped to their ‘M-’ varieties. For example, to select the last menu item, press M-0.

0 (last-menu-item)
M-0, vi-like operation

Select the last item in the current node’s menu.

m (menu-item)

Reads the name of a menu item in the echo area and selects its node. Completion is available while reading the menu label. See completion.

M-x find-menu

Move the cursor to the start of this node’s menu.

This table lists the Info commands which operate on cross references.

f (xref-item)
r
M-f, vi-like operation
C-x r, vi-like operation

Reads the name of a note cross reference in the echo area and selects its node. Completion is available while reading the cross reference label. See completion.

Finally, the next few commands operate on menu or note references alike:

TAB (move-to-next-xref)

Move the cursor to the start of the next nearest menu item or note reference in this node. You can then use RET (select-reference-this-line) to select the menu or note reference.

M-TAB (move-to-prev-xref)
Shift-TAB (on DOS/Windows only)

Move the cursor the start of the nearest previous menu item or note reference in this node.

On DOS/Windows only, the Shift-TAB key is an alias for M-TAB. This key is sometimes called ‘BackTab’.

RET (select-reference-this-line)
M-g, vi-like operation

Select the menu item or note reference appearing on this line.
