Using Keyboard Maps

Host terminal and PC keyboards have different sets of keys; for example, many terminal keyboards have a Transmit key, but PC keyboards do not. Reflection pre-configures each session document with a built-in "keyboard map," substituting a PC key (or combination of keys) for the terminal function, so that a PC can communicate with a host in the same way as a terminal.

A keyboard map lists host terminal keys and their definitions, as well as all defined keystrokes (shortcuts).

You can create keyboard shortcuts that perform any assignable action during a Reflection session. For example, using the Keyboard Mapper, you can select a standard action, such as Send Text or Launch Application, or you can create a macro or complex sequence of actions that you assign to a keystroke.

Initially, each session uses the default built-in keyboard map. However, when you add keyboard shortcuts using the Keyboard Mapper, the modified keyboard map is saved to a new, custom keyboard map file, which you can use with other sessions.
