Define Hot Spots

Hotspots are virtual buttons that appear over text in terminal sessions. By using hotspots, you can control your terminal session with the mouse instead of the keyboard. Typically, clicking a hotspot transmits a terminal key or command to the host, but you can also configure hotspots to open a Web page, launch a macro, or perform a variety of other actions.

To create and configure a customized hotspots file

  1. With a session open in Reflection, from the Quick Access Toolbar, click Document settings button.
  2. Under Terminal Appearance, click Manage Hotspots.
  3. Click Create a new hotspots file from an existing hotspots file.
  4. In the Create a New Hotspots File dialog box, select the type of hotspots file (built-in, Custom, or the new file for the current session) to use as a template for creating a new hotspots file.
  5. In the Modify Hotspots dialog box, under Hotspot text enter the text for the hotspot.
  6. Under Select an action to map to the hotspot, select an action to map to and configure the action.
  7. When prompted, save the new hotspot file.
  8. On the Quick Access Toolbar, click the Save Save button to save the session.

    The session is automatically configured to point to the new hotspot file.
