Editor Window Features and Functionality

Splitting the Screen

Splitting the screen allows you to view different sections of the same code script in two separate windows. You can make changes to the script on either one of the split screens and changes will be automatically updated in the script body as well as in all other screens. Splitting options are available under the Window main menu item, as well as on the right-click menu of the script window tab. Three types of splitting are support:

Horizontal Splitting. This feature is useful to view separate sections of a single long script. For example, the following figure demonstrates a single script with hundreds of lines of code when the screen is split. Changes can then be made simultaneously on with screen and will be updated in both.

Figure 123:  Horizontal splitting of a long script allows to make changes to several portions of the script at the same time.

Vertical splitting. Vertical splitting is useful in rare cases where long lines of code are used. For example, you can then split the screen and make changes to two sections of a single long line. Splitting the screen vertically for a long line of code is demonstrated in the following figure.

Figure 124:  Vertical splitting of a single script.

Four Way Split. The editor window can be split a single script screen into four different sections. This allows you to work on different portions of the code in four different working sections. Splitting the screen into four sections is demonstrated in the figure below.
