Another thing you could do is allow multiple instances of UE, then use Windows tile function to view each tiled vertically. Here's how using UE v13.20:
- In the UE menu, click Advanced > Configuration, expand Application Layout and select Miscellaneous. Check the "Allow Multiple Instances" option. Close and reopen Ultraedit.
- In that already open session of Ultraedit, open the first file you want to work with.
- Start a second session of Ultraedit (just start UE normally and it will open a second session due to the changes you made in first step. In that second UE session, open the second file you want to work with (Yes, you can open the same file again (see Note below).
- On the Windows Taskbar, while continuing to hold down the Ctrl key, click on the buttons for both UltraEdit sessions until they both appear to be pressed (darkened). Using the RIGHT mouse button, click on either of those darkened buttons and then select "Tile Vertically".
Note: When you have the same file open in two sessions and plan to make changes, you should only apply changes to one of them. Here's why: Changes made in one session are not automatically applied or even displayed in the second session. Once you save the changed file, you can then activate the other session (click on anywhere in it's window), and Ultraedit will then notify you that the file has changed and prompt you as to whether it should be reloaded (yes). You don't have to reload if you just close the second session without saving.Caution!
If you do not reload the second session and then save it too, you will have effectively undone all the changes made in the first session.
Hope that is clear enough and that you find this useful!
