Is there a way of splitting my screen...

Recommended Posts

...so that I can look at two plans at the same time?

 

I know that I seem to do things in a way that is totally different to how others might but that is just me and I seem to, somehow, always get there in the end.

 

I am busy splitting my office block into individual office areas.  At the same time I am also labelling the offices and placing desks (370 of them) and things within the offices.  BUT I am doing this on two separate plans because the "furniture" plan is for illustration purposes only and I want to keep it totally separate from the main plan.

 

Obviously I am moving internal walls around while doing the office layout and allocation and while I know that I can flip between one plan and the other (which is somewhat laborious and time consuming) I would really prefer it if I could split my screen and have the relevant sections of both plans visible at the same time so that what I do in one split section I can do immediately in the second.

 

Is this possible or am I hoping for too much?  Which wouldn't surprise me at all.

Hi Keith

I think I understand what you are trying to do.

If you open both files (plans) and select  Window>Tile  Vertically you will have both plans side by side.

A shorcut to this is to hit SHIFT-F6.

I am based in the UK so it would be good to swap ideas (in Metric of course!)

Bloody marvellous! Thank you. That is exactly what I wanted. This must be my shortest topic yet. :lol:

2015 also allows multiple screens now , you just drag the Tab to the other monitor , though you can drag the single window out to two monitors in 2014 and below as well and still use Shift-F6
