Are reflections limitations avoidable?

Are reflections limitations avoidable?

Are reflections limitations avoidable?

Hello all,

I've done some digging and couldn't find a post related to this question. From what I've read on Attachmate products, reflections is the user friendly interface that makes Macro's great for the average user. All well in good; however, we are getting this software across the floor and as they install it they've been uninstalling our Attachmate EXTRA! software.

Issue being, we will lose the interface that allows us to edit/update our quickpads. Is there any way within reflections to interact with a quickpad other than just adding it on? If at the very least, an opportunity to quickly layout the macro's within one into a new tab?

The only option I see right now is creating a new tab and then creating a new "button" for each macro... one by one...

Any guidance is appreciated!

RE: Are reflections limitations avoidable?

Quickpads don't work consistently within Attachmate Reflections. There appears to be a bug in the code which makes them not work consistently. You're better off replacing them with Macros in my opinions, though this will require some learning on how to utilize the ribbon and work with ribbon design, which will require a bit of a learning curve.
