Create or Modify a Layout

By saving terminal sessions you use regularly to a layout, you can open them all at once, arranged as you prefer, just by opening the layout.

To create a layout

  1. Open the documents and any docked panes you want to include in the layout.
  2. (Optional) To access multiple layouts using the Reflection .NET API, enter the necessary API settings.
    1. From the Reflection button, choose Settings, and then click Layout Settings.
    2. Enter the appropriate values for the server and channel name, and the API port.
  3. (Optional) Add a descriptive label to each document:
    1. Right-click the session tab, and then choose Tab Properties.
    2. In the Name box, type in the name that you want to appear on the tab, and then click OK.
  4. Adjust the size and position of the workspace, as needed.
  5. From the Reflection button, choose Save Layout.
  6. Name and save the layout file to a trusted location, and then click Save.

    If you haven't saved the session documents, you are prompted to do so.

To modify a saved layout

  • To save changes to a layout, save it again using the same name.

    Note: Reflection doesn't prompt you to save changes to a layout.
