Configure Recent Typing Dialog Box

How do I get to this dialog box?
  1. Open the Settings window.

    The steps depend on your user interface mode.

    User Interface Mode Steps
    Ribbon or Reflection Browser With a session open in Reflection, from the Quick Access Toolbar, click .
    TouchUx Tap the Gear icon and then select Document Settings.
  2. On the Settings dialog box, under Productivity, select Configure Recent Typing.

Using the Recent Typing gallery or task pane, you can quickly view and select from a list of recently typed items, and send the selected string to the active document. This eliminates the need to manually re-enter information, saving time, and reducing errors when entering commonly-typed commands or field data.


  • This feature is not available with VT sessions.

  • Typing is not captured in hidden-text fields such as passwords.


Setting Description
Number of words to remember Reflection identifies and remembers new typed words when a field is exited by Tabkey, Spacebar, or other terminal-specific method.
Minimum word length (characters) This feature defines the number of characters that Reflection considers a word. At the default setting of 3 characters, if you type something such as " US" into a field, it will not be remembered, and does not appear on the Recent Typing gallery and task pane.
Clear Recent Typing list when disconnected When selected, the Recent Typing list is deleted when the session is disconnected for any reason. When cleared, the Recent Typing list is deleted when the session is closed.

Note: If the Recent Typing list has been saved to a file, the recent typing file is not affected.
