Splitting the screen horizontally

To split the screen horizontally:

  1. Move the mouse pointer into the vertical scroll bar, on the right-hand side of the screen, and place it over the small button at the top with the black triangle.


  1. Immediately above this button you will see a thick black line (Figure 16). Move the mouse pointer over this line and it will turn into a line with two arrows (Figure 17).


  1. Hold down the left mouse button and a grey line will appear, running across the page. Drag the mouse downwards and this line will follow.

  2. Release the mouse button and the screen will split into two views, each with its own vertical scroll bar.

Notice in Figure 15, the ‘Beta’ and the ‘A0’ values are in the upper part of the window and other calculations are in the lower part.You may scroll the upper and lower parts independently.Thus you can make changes to the Beta and A0 values and watch their affects on the calculations in the lower half of the window.

You can also split the window vertically as described below—with the same results, being able to scroll both parts of the window independently.With both horizontal and vertical splits, you have four independent windows to scroll.
