I would like to scroll my files opened in vim using mousewheel, but at the same time using the left mouse button to select text into clipboard.
:set mouse=nicr (or
:set mouse=a) will only accomplish the former, doing
:set mouse= will only accomplish the latter.
There is a similar question - Vim enable mouse scroll only - not cursor positioning - already on SU, but the answer suggests to disable left click functionality altogether, contrary to my needs.
I work with MATE terminal (xterm).
