2.5.1 Create or Modify a Layout

By saving terminal sessions you use regularly to a layout, you can open them all at once, arranged as you prefer, just by opening the layout.

NOTE:If you already have terminal session or Web session document open when you open a layout, the layout opens in a new workspace.

To create a layout

  1. Open the documents and any docked panes you want to include in the layout.

  2. If you want to be able to access multiple layouts using the Reflection .NET API, enter the necessary API settings as follows:

    1. Enter the appropriate values for the server and channel name.

  3. If the workspace is configured to display documents as tabs, you can add a descriptive label to each document tab:

    1. Right-click the session tab, and then choose Tab Properties.

    2. In the Name box, type in the name that you want to appear on the tab, and then click OK.

  4. Carefully arrange all the session windows until you have set everything up just the way you want it.

    • If you are using the Classic user interface mode, arrange the sessions on your desktop.

    • For other interface modes, arrange the windows in the workspace and adjust the size and position of the workspace, as needed.

  5. Name and save the layout file to a trusted location, and then click Save.

    If you haven't saved the session documents, you are prompted to do so.

To modify a saved layout

  • To save changes to a layout, save it again using the same name.

    NOTE:Reflection doesn't prompt you to save changes to a layout.
