Imported toolbar buttons from Reflection version 14 display a label in Reflection Desktop even though original buttons did not have any text associated with the button.


If using Reflection Desktop 16.0:
        Upgrade to Reflection Desktop 16.0 SP1 HF12 or higher  (16.0.399)
If using Reflection Desktop 16.1:
        Upgrade to Reflection Desktop 16.1 SP1 or higher

After upgrading the Reflection Desktop version, re-import the legacy Host session file from Reflection version 14 to display the correctly labeled, or non-labeled buttons.

A HotFix (HF) for Reflection Desktop is a cumulatively built product update, intended for limited distribution, which addresses specific customer issues and enhancement requests; outside the regular Development release cycle. It is only available to Micro Focus customers with current software support and maintenance contracts, and only after contacting Micro Focus Customer Support directly.  A HotFix undergoes limited stability and quality testing and is intended for quick release to address specific product issues and should not be deployed to production environments without thorough testing.  It is recommended to upgrade to a full-release or a Service Pack version of Reflection Desktop when it becomes available.
