FlexTerm Extensions is a powerful tool, which provides enhanced functionality and increased productivity for the user. Included are three system extensions for function keys, notes and print multiple screens on a single page, with the ability to create custom extensions with buttons for performing any FlexTerm Action
Available action assignments include host keys, text strings, macros, FlexTerm commands, external programs/documents and more.
