The making of TSW WebCoder 2013 part 10 – Side-by-side editing

October 12, 2012

This is one of the blog posts I have been looking most forward to writing, because it's about one of the single most requested features for WebCoder through the last several versions: The ability to have more than one document visible, open and ready for editing at the same time. Here's a screenshot of this ability in action:

Documents in WebCoder 2012 works just like all the other Tool windows, which means that you can move them around and even have one or several documents open on a secondary monitor. Having multiple documents visible at the same time is as simple as dragging a document tab to the desired location, or right-clicking it and selecting the desired action:

multiple_documents_menu

You can even have several documents open in several directions, in case you have a high-resolution monitor (click for full-size image):

As you can see, the possibilities are pretty much endless - the above setup could be in the main area of WebCoder or as a floating, combined Tool window on my secondary monitor or both at the same time!

The ability to have multiple documents open simultaneously can be a big help, especially for people with high resolutions and/or multiple monitors, which is true for a lot of programmers these days. I hope you like what you see :)
