Distinct IntelliTerm’s Entry Assist function enhances the ability to create and edit text material such as memos, letters, reports, and lists. Unlike real 3270 or 5250 terminals, Distinct IntelliTerm’s Entry Assist functions do not require support from the IBM host editors or the IBM host system.

With Entry Assist enabled, the following extensions are available:

  • Word wrap
  • Columnar tabbing
  • Audible end-of-line signal (Bell)
  • Cursor Position Display
  • Definable HOME Position

TN3270 and TN5250 provide cursor word positioning, word delete, and tab to end-of-line functions without requiring Entry Assist to be enabled.

Unlike other emulators, the Word Wrap feature can work within preset margins or can automatically use the field width as the left and right margins. This allows you to easily use Word Wrap from system to system without constantly setting the margins.

You can set the Entry Assist features by selecting Session Profile from the Options menu, and then choosing the Entry Assist category.
