Select the Keyboard Map for a Session

A keyboard map is a configuration file that allows you to use your PC keyboard as a host terminal keyboard. Keyboard maps also include definitions for keyboard shortcuts. Reflection pre-configures all session documents to use a built-in keyboard map file. You can choose to use a different built-in map, or a custom map that you've created.

To select a keyboard map

  1. Open a session document.
  2. From the Quick Access toolbar, click the Document Settings button.
  3. Under Input Devices, click Manage Keyboard Map.
  4. Click Select another keyboard map file.
  5. Do one of the following:
