EEview may be configured to display two files – 'Twin view', or up to four files – 'Quad view' (see Twin/Quad view).
|1.||Run EEview: a standard 'Open' dialog is shown.|
|o||hold down the Shift key and select a block of files or |
|o||hold down the Ctrl key and select additional individual files.|
|3.||If only one file is open in Twin view or fewer than four files are open in Quad view, the 'Open' dialog is shown again: select another file and click Open. |
|o||If Quad view has been set up and saved (see Twin/Quad view), the Open dialog is shown twice more so that two more files may be selected. These will be displayed in their own EscapeE windows at the foot of the screen.|
The selected files are opened and displayed, each in its own EscapeE window.
If you already have two files open in 'Twin view' and would like to open another file:
|1.||Click the Information button.|
|2.||Tick Quad view on the 'Options' sub-menu.|
|3.||Click the File open button.|
|4.||A standard 'Open' dialog is shown: select the new file(s) as before|
The first time that the 'Open' dialog is displayed, move it to the bottom-right of the screen. This ensures that it does not get hidden by the newly opened files.
