Vim + tmux with mouse support questions

xiebo212
Hi,

I am pretty new for vim and tmux, and exploring right now. I have vim set up on terminal (using putty) with mouse support, but when I moved to tmux. Found a couple of problems.

(1) I like quickfix window, use :ccopen to open quickfix window in vim, and I can resize the quickfix window with mouse without any problem. But in tmux + vim, mouse doesn't seem to work in resizing quickfix window (using mouse to click into quickfix window is fine). Note that I was able to use mouse to select/resize pan in tmux by the following settings.
set-option -g mode-mouse on
set-option -g mouse-select-pane on
set-option -g mouse-select-window on
set-option -g mouse-resize-pane on

The problem here seems to be, how to enable mouse to resize a window(quickfix window, NOT tmux window) inside one tmux pane.

(2) I installed and enabled ctags and taglist in my vim setup. I can use mouse to resize taglist window. But when I moved to tmux, taglist window can still be opened and entered, but the window resize using mouse seems disabled. This is similiar situation in quickfix window.

Does anybody has an idea about how to fix these problems? I wish I can entirely move to tmux using vim+mouse to improve productivity.

Thanks a lot,
Bo

i don't have a solution for you - I saw this same thing with tmux and
found :res / :vertical resize or C-W -/+, </>, =/| actually worked
faster anyway. more fluid too. so, if anyone has a solution, i'll
probably use it just to be able to show off vim coolness with the
mouse again, but it won't do anything for my productivity :)

this is not (necessarily) an issue with putty as i use rxvt+u and
screen-256color terminal

also, this is with mouse=all with vim 7.3

i'm guessing this is a tmux issue where it is stealing whatever mouse
terminal command or signal (i don't really know how mice interact with
the terminal) vim would use to respond the way you want. if this is
the case, and you get no working response, there's a tmux user list as
well with a decent community you might look to. (though something like
this should go in vim's faq somewhere)

Thanks Shawn. I also used command to get around of these types of problems, but haven't tried vertical resize. Will try all your suggestions.

Thanks a lot.
