Reflection also supports Tektronix 4010/4014 graphics features in VT terminals, including Tektronix 4105 commands for line style and color.
ReGIS support is included in the following current products:
- Reflection for UNIX and OpenVMS 2011
- Reflection for UNIX and OpenVMS 2008
- Reflection for UNIX and OpenVMS version 14.x
- Reflection suites that include the above products.
Note: ReGIS is not included in the standalone (non-suite) Reflection X product.
ReGIS support was formerly available in standalone products Reflection for UNIX and OpenVMS (versions 9.0 through 13.0), Reflection for ReGIS Graphics (versions 6.0 through 8.0x), and Reflection 4 (versions 5.21 and earlier), and suites that included these products.

- In Reflection 2011 or 2008: When creating a new VT session document, you must enable the “Support graphics” option (located right of the “Terminal type” list option for new VT sessions, or below the “Terminal type” selection for existing VT sessions).
