Subject: Opening a new window of the same drawing



You can open additional windows to create more than one view of a drawing. To open a new window, choose Window > New Window. After you open a new win­dow, you can change its display without affecting any of the other windows.    

When you open more than one window for a single drawing, each window is assigned a unique number (for example, mydrawing:1, mydrawing:2, and so on). If your cur­rent window is maximized, you can switch to another open window by selecting its name from the bottom of the Window menu.              

The names of other open drawings appear at the bottom of the Window menu. You can also use the Cascade, Tile Horizontally, and Tile Vertically commands to arrange all the open windows and drawings. To arrange all the windows and drawings into a stack of identically sized windows, choose Window > Cascade. Arranging windows and drawings in this way makes it easy to see the title bar for each window.      

To arrange all the windows and drawings horizontally so they are placed in order from top to bottom, choose Window > Tile Horizontally. Arranging windows and drawings in this way displays each open window. The windows are resized to fit within the available space.    

To arrange all the windows and drawings vertically so they are placed side by side, choose Window > Tile Vertically. Arranging windows and drawings in this way dis­plays each open window. The windows are resized to fit within the available space.

To manage all the windows from one dialog box, choose Window > Windows to open the Windows dialog box.
