In hledger-ui, when using a terminal which supports mouse clicks, there are two areas you can click to go back to the previous screen:

1. The 1-char-wide left margin of the terminal
2. The main content area, anywhere below the last list item

I am finding 2 a bit obtrusive - often I trigger a go-back event when I only wanted to focus the window. When testing in VS Code terminal pane, at least.

So I'm thinking of dropping it. Then to go back with the mouse you'd have to click the left margin, which is less easy but fairly intuitive.

Would you be in favour of removing the large click target ?

To be frank I have never used the functionality, but 2 seems a bit too
much, being confused with focus, copy, etc.

Hi!

For my workflow this functionality is not necessary - it is a hindrance more often than not. I just wanted to move focus to the terminal window, not go back!

+1 for removal of this large "click-to-go-back" area.

Cheers,
Timofey
