You can split the workspace horizontally or vertically to enable multiple simultaneously displayed windows. Each panel acts independently, allowing multiple windows to be docked for viewing.

You can open two windows of the same type, such as two Device windows for viewing different areas of the device or different zoom levels. You can also open two different windows to permit better interaction between the two windows, such as the Device and Package windows (shown in the following figure).

To split the workspace, use either of the following methods:

  • Right-click a window tab, and select New Horizontal Group or New Vertical Group from the popup menu.
    Note: These commands are available in the workspace windows only.
  • Select a window tab, and drag it to the edge of the workspace. A gray rectangle shows a preview of the window location. Position the cursor to arrange the windows as desired, and release the mouse to move the window and split the workspace.
