Is there a terminal emulator in which you can select where to edit with mouse, as in, if you click somewhere in a line you can type at that place (to correct typos)?

  • I often make mistakes and would rather just point and click at place I'd like to edit the command. Im unclear if pantheon-terminal has that, but it says it has natural copy/paste so I imagine that involves pointer support. I haven't found a way to install it yet, are there extensions of gnome terminal?
