Multiple Views within a Project

Project Views


Multiple projects or multiple views within one project can be opened as separate tabs within the View window.


To view multiple tabs at the same time, users may choose to split the window or undock one of the tabs. To split the View window, either right-click the tab and choose New Horizontal Tab Group or New Vertical Tab Group or grab the view tab by clicking with the mouse and drag it to an anchor and release.


A tab may be undocked into its own View window by either:

1.Grabbing the View tab by clicking with the mouse and dragging it down to an anchor and releasing, or

2.Double-clicking the View tab. The tab cannot be closed from this separate window. Right-click the window header and select Tabbed Document to be able to close this tab.
