split view/pane with different files?
« on: September 25, 2011, 08:58:18 pm »
ok so in xcode, emacs and etc, i can split the view/pane into two different windows and view two different files on each pane respectively.  however, on codeblocks, when i split the view, i can only view the same file on the other pane.  how can i view another file on the second pane instead of the same one?

If you have two files open, you can simply click in one of the tabs, drag it to another place (e.g. the right of the editor pane) and drop it there.

i see it works but i am only able to make it split horizontally, eg top and bottom but i can't seem to make it split vertically even though i drag and drop to the left or right side..

nevermind i got it to work, to get it to split vertically, you have to drag the one you want to the left, not to the right

Works for me on both sides, but wxWidgets docking system is sometimes a little bit tricky.
