Using Layouts

In Reflection, the size, location, and arrangement of the workspace and any open terminal or Web session documents can be saved to a layout file. When opened, a layout automatically opens and arranges all documents saved to the layout, opens and positions any docked panes (such as Scratch Pad or Screen History), and connects session documents to configured hosts.

The layout also applies tab properties, which allow you to add a custom name to document tabs. This can be useful if, for example, you use two different applications on one host. You can create a session document that connects to that host, then open the document twice, add a different name to each tab, and then save your layout.

When you add a name to the document tab, the filename still appears in the title bar of the workspace.

In addition, by using layout files, you can access the Reflection .NET API in multiple instances of Reflection simultaneously.

Note: If you already have terminal session or Web session documents open when you open a layout, the layout opens in a new workspace.
