Article: Q35235 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.00 | 1.00 Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 1-MAY-1989 Question: How can I create multiple windows and edit multiple files with the Microsoft Editor? Response: Both horizontal and vertical windows can be created. You can have up to eight windows on the screen. To create a horizontal window, position the cursor on the screen where you would like the window break and press ARG WINDOW (ALT+A F6 in the default). This process creates a new window with a copy of the file you were currently editing. You then can load a different file into that window (ARG SETFILE ALT+A F2). To create a vertical window, position the cursor on the screen where you would like the window break and press ARG ARG WINDOW (ALT+A ALT+A F6 in the default). You then can load a different file into the window. Once you have several windows on the screen you can move around from window to window using the WINDOW command (F6 in the default setup). See also section 4.6 of the "Microsoft Editor User's Guide." Note: Each window must have a minimum of five lines and 10 columns to be created.
