Manage Ribbon Dialog Box

Getting there

The Ribbon contains tools that you use to complete tasks in the selected document. When you create a terminal session document, it includes a pointer to a default, built-in Ribbon file. For example, a new 5250 session document uses Reflection2007.5250.Ribbon.xuml (or Reflection2007.5250.Classic.xuml if you work in Classic mode). You can choose a different Ribbon file for each session, and you can create custom Ribbon files using the UI Designer.

 

Select another Ribbon file

Click to choose a different Ribbon file from a list of existing Ribbon files. The file must be in a trusted location.

 

Modify the currently selected Ribbon file

Select to open the UI Designer and modify the Ribbon file used by this session. Because built-in files are read-only, if the currently selected file is a built-in file, it will be saved as a custom file when you change it.

 

Note: If you select a Ribbon that doesn't match the current document type or user interface, the default Ribbon is used instead to ensure access to all features.

 

Create a new Ribbon from an existing file

Click to create a custom Ribbon file based on an existing Ribbon file. To reopen the file later, it must be saved in a trusted location.
