4.21.1 Manage QuickPads Dialog Box

A QuickPad is a small window that you can load during a session. QuickPads contain buttons and other controls that can be used to access macros, host functions, commands, or other actions that are available within a terminal session. You can display one or more QuickPads in a session.

To add a QuickPad or toolbar to your session

  • Click Select QuickPads, select a QuickPad file, and then click OK.

    The QuickPad is displayed in the existing session and the session document is set to display the QuickPad in new sessions.


  • If the QuickPad is closed during the session, it is not displayed in new sessions. To display the QuickPad, you’ll need to add it to your session.

  • Legacy toolbars are imported as QuickPads that open in a QuickPad window docked on the top of the session window.
