Browser Mode

The Browser Mode command toggles Source Insight's Browser-Mode. When Browser-Mode is on, your source code becomes read-only, and acts like a web browser. For example, single clicking on the name of a function in a function call will jump to the function's definition.

You can also toggle Browser-Mode by right-clicking in the small box at the bottom right of the Source Insight application window. Then select Enable/Disable Browse Mode from the pop-up menu
