Applied Parameters: None

Summary

This command is used to present all open design documents in their own individually-tiled regions, within the main application design window.

Access

This command is accessed from most editors, by:

  • Choosing the Window » Tile command from the main menus.
  • Using the Shift+F4 keyboard shortcut.

Use

After launching the command, each open design document will be split into its own separate region. These regions will be tiled, so that you can see all documents at once.

Tiling will be across two columns, and as many rows as necessary to accommodate the number of open documents.

Tips

  1. Opening a subsequent document after using this command, will place it as a new tab in the currently active region. Run the command again in order to place this newly-opened document in its own tiled region.
  2. To place all documents back into the same, single design window, right-click on a document tab and choose the Merge All command. All documents will be merged into a single window and the document that was active prior to the merge will remain active.
  3. The active document can be opened in a new Altium NEXUS window in one of two ways. Either right-click on its tab and choose Open in New Window, or click on its tab and drag it to a point outside of the current Altium NEXUS window.
