I've recently encountered an interesting feature in the terminal on my Zorin OS where the context menu seems to be auto-converting decimal numbers into hexadecimal representation and vice-versa. For example, I see things like:
0x40 on 64
0xa on 10
32 on 0x20
15 on 0xf
While this is undoubtedly a handy feature for certain situations, I am curious about its origin and if it's possible to customize these automatic transformations. I've looked around but haven't found any settings or options that pertain to this. Also Help for the terminal is silent about this feature.
My questions are:
Can anyone shed light on why my terminal is auto-converting numbers to hexadecimal in the context menu? Is it a default feature of the terminal in Zorin OS, or could it be something that got installed or configured without my noticing?
I'm interested in possibly adding more custom transformations to the context menu. Is it possible to do so? For instance, can we add a feature that performs different types of operations on selected text?
Any guidance or resources you could provide would be greatly appreciated. I'm sure other users might find this topic interesting as well.
You can also open the screenshot options and do a Timed Screenshot in order to capture the Context Menu.
Looking at your screenshot - I am stumped. I have never seen that on any distro and I am not sure if it is a feature of Education or not.
I will need to look into this. Your second screenshot of the About Gnome Terminal shows a standard Gnome Terminal version.
The keyboard shortcut will be unresponsive when there's a context menu but you can search for "screenshot" in the start menu which will have the option to set a delay before taking a screenshot.
Obviously, you'd have to do this before opening the context menu.
