The following table lists the Info commands which operate on menu items.
- 1 (
- 2 ... 9
- M-1, vi-like operation
- M-2 ... M-9, vi-like operation
Within an Info window, pressing a single digit, (such as `1'),
selects that menu item, and places its node in the current window.
For convenience, there is one exception; pressing `0' selects the
last item in the node's menu. When `--vi-keys' is in
effect, digits set the numeric argument, so these commands are remapped
to their `M-' varieties. For example, to select the last menu
item, press M-0.
- 0 (
- M-0, vi-like operation

- C-x r, vi-like operation

reference in this node. You can then use RET
select-reference-this-line) to select the menu or note reference.
