Using Terminal Mode Screens
You can choose which programs to run in Terminal mode using the Properties, Program, Opens With pull-down menu. Right-click a program name to display its Properties.
By default, the display mode is determined by settings in Program Information Maintenance ( Any program that is not defined in Program Information Maintenance automatically displays in Terminal mode.
Note: While you can have many instances of a Desktop or Desktop (Web Browser) screen open, you cannot run two instances of the same program in Terminal screens.
Terminal display mode includes the following features:
Configuring multiple language support for terminal client
Telnet support for Windows (limited only by how Georgia Softworks and Desktop use Telnet)
Telnet, SSH1 and SSH2 support for UNIX, specified in the Client Session Configuration file’s <TerminalProtocol> setting
Right-click paste from clipboard in multiple languages
Custom key mappings
Multiple language support for UNIX
Cut and Paste capability (in multiple languages)
Print and print preview capability

Note: If record locking occurs in an environment where the database is running on a Windows server and the QAD Application Server (Tomcat) is running on a Linux server, you cannot close a program displayed in Terminal mode by using Ctrl+C or Ctrl+Break. Instead, you must close the program by clicking on the “x” in the program tab. For example, if you open Sales Order Maintenance in Desktop mode and open a record named 1234, and then open Sales Order Maintenance in Telnet mode and open a record named 1234, the Telnet mode displays an error message telling you to use Ctrl+C or Ctrl+Break to close the program. However, to close the program, you must click the “x” in the program tab instead.
You can use standard function keys to navigate in character programs. A status line at the bottom of the screen displays active function keys.
Terminal mode screens automatically resize to fill the available application space. You can use the mouse to select text on the screen to paste into another application. Otherwise, you cannot use the mouse to navigate programs in Terminal mode screens.
You can also use the Print and Print Preview commands to send images of Terminal mode screens to an output device.
