Getting there

The options are:

Backspace sends

Select what should be sent to the host when the Backspace key is pressed.

Note: Changing this setting affects how Reflection X Advantage sends the Backspace and Delete functions to X clients; because different X clients interpret these functions differently, you may get unexpected results with some clients. For example, the hpterm client normally responds to the Delete function with a backspace. With the Backspace sends option set to Delete, hpterm responds to your computer's Backspace key with a backspace, and not as Delete.



Have Backspace function as a backspace. This is the default. (To perform a delete when this option is selected, press Shift+Backspace.)



Have Backspace function as Delete. (To perform a backspace when this option is selected, press Shift+Backspace).



Have Backspace perform a backspace (as typically used under UNIX hosts).

Permit X clients to remap the keyboard

Some X clients (for example, xmodmap) perform keyboard remapping. If permitted, these client remappings override whatever is specified in the Reflection X keymap file.

By default, the Reflection X keyboard mapping is used, regardless of client requests. If a client attempts to do any remapping when such behavior is not permitted, a protocol error is returned to the client.

Native IME Support

If you already use an IME (Input method editor) that is available on your workstation, you may want to enable Native IME Support. This feature lets you use your workstation's IME to compose text. The XIM server provided by Reflection X Advantage obtains the composed text from your IME and passes it to XIM-aware clients. This means that you can work with varied X clients without having to learn new input techniques.

The Reflection XIM server supports:

  • On-the-spot and over-the-spot editing
  • All Unicode characters, including Japanese, Chinese, and Korean characters

For configuration details, see Configure Reflection X Advantage to Use Your Local IME.

Launch XIM Server

Start an XIM server which obtains composed text from the native IME and passes it to X clients.

Force clients to use Reflection's XIM server

Override an X client's choice of XIM server and force it to connect to the XIM server that uses the native IME.

You should always select this option. It helps ensure that the X Client will locate the Reflection XIM server, which is the only XIM server able to pass input from your local IME to the X client. (In rare instances you may want to clear this setting during troubleshooting.)
