Applied Parameters: Mode=Horizontal
This command is used to 'split' the display of the current document into two distinct horizontal sections, allowing you to browse and edit two different areas of the same document.
Choose Window » Split Horizontally from the main menus.
After launching the command, the document window will be divided, horizontally, into two equal sections. A 'splitter bar' divides the two sections. Click and drag this dividing bar up or down, to change the area of document visible in each section.
You are now able to freely browse and edit different areas of the (single) current document.
- When the command is launched, the document is divided into two equal halves. The top half will show an area starting from the beginning (top) of the document. The bottom half will show an area starting from the point in the document that was originally at the top of the display window prior to launching the command.
- To revert back to a single window for the document, use the Remove Split command, accessed from the Window menu. The area of the document that will be displayed when the split is removed will be that currently displayed in the bottom section.
- If you want to change the split mode from horizontal to vertical, simply use the Split Vertically command, also accessed from the Window menu.
