#517 tiled windows

Roedy Green

Lets say I am editing three files It would be nice if there were something on the menu to tile all three so I can see them at once. It would be nice to drag them around to resize them and reposition them relatively, not independently. Closing them would make the remaing windows grow to take up the freed space.

    I guess Your wish isn't compatible with the way jEdit manages Views and EditPanes.

    But perhabs You havn't noticed yet the menu items under "View -> Split" which let You split a single View (window) into several EditPanes (look at http://www.jedit.org/users-guide/overview.html).

    Should the status be closed-rejected or something?

    I wrote a macro to achieve this.
    I think it currently has an issue, so I wrote to the devel mailing list. Hope someone can have a look.

    If it works, I'll append it here. It will automatically open 2, 3, 4, 6 or 9 textareas in a split view configuration, depending on the number of open files.
