When programming in languages that have separate header and body files, such as C, C++, Ada, I like to view one or more header files (like .h) while editing a body file (like .cpp). It's awkward to frequently flip between files in one editor using tabs. Is it possible to show several files simultaneously?

Daren,

Yes, with drag and drop from the tab, you can move an editor so it
appears beside another editor. Watch the outline change for where it
will be dropped when you move it near edges...
