Built In Controls Dialog Box in UI Designer

How do I get to this dialog box?
  1. Open a session document.

  2. On the Appearance tab, in the Menus group, click UI Designer.

Reflection includes several controls that you can customize. With UI Designer, you can change the default location and settings of these controls to better suit your needs.

Click Built-Ins in the Insert Controls pane of UI Designer to choose from the following options:

Setting Description
Quick Keys Gallery Add keyboard shortcuts that let you send program function keys, program attention keys, and other commands to the host.
Office Tools Gallery Use Microsoft Word and Outlook application features with data from your host: create Word documents, send e-mail, schedule appointments, add notes and tasks, and create new contacts.
Recent Typing Gallery Quickly view and select from a list of recently typed items, and send the selected string to the active document, eliminating the need to re-enter information. This saves time and reduces errors when entering commonly-typed commands or field data.
Scratch Pad Gallery Keep notes associated with a session using the Scratch Pad, and print or save them as .rtf or .txt files.
Screen History Gallery View and/or verify the information from Screen History recordings of host screens as you navigate them, and send multiple host screens to Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook (Email Message and Note only), if they're installed on your computer.
Colorpicker Control Add a control for standard and custom colors for host sessions.
VBA / Macro Group Provide the Visual Basic editor, and macro recording and playback tools.
Themes Group Set the appearance of host sessions, including text and background colors, sounds, and cursor properties.
