Splitting the Source Editor

You can split the Source Editor to view two files simultaneously or to view different parts of the same file.

To split the Source Editor window:

  1. Make sure at least two files are already open.
  2. Click a tab on one file; hold down the mouse button; and drag the tab to the far left, far right, or bottom of the Source Editor window.
  3. Release the mouse button when the red outline that appeared around the tab when you started dragging changes to a rectangle indicating the placement of the split window.

To view different parts of the same file simultaneously:

  1. Click the file's tab in the Source Editor and choose Clone Document to create a second tab for the same document.
  2. Drag and drop one of the file tabs to create a split Source Editor area. (See the procedure above for info on dragging and dropping Source Editor tabs.)
