Sometimes we just want to see multiple things at once, and our editor window allows for just that!

Clicking the icon in the top right corner of the editor window provides a “split” window feature that

allows you to see the same file multiple times.

Each different section can be scrolled individually and the height can be changed if you

need to see more of one section than another.

Now it gets even more cool… using the icons at the top select the icon to ‘split vertically’.

Now you can see the source file and the companion header file that goes with it. Since the source file is quite long I still want to see different areas of the same file, so I remember to use the horizontal split that we just discussed.
