Alright, I've got one for you.
Can CodeWright do split screen? (and by this I mean PROPER split screen,
with two files, not the look-at-two-sections-of-the-same-file-at-once
feature you get by hitting F5. We use codewright at work, and while some
of its features are nice, there are quite a few head-scratchers and
wrist-cutters.

Marcel:

It's so easy -- and so standard across almost ALL Windows apps --
that I think I may be misunderstanding your question, but...

Open two documents, select "Arrange Horizontally" or "Arrange
Vertically" from the Windows menu.

Is that what you mean?

Well yes and no. Obviously it's easy to do with seperate windows. But
you have the menu/window frame of the windows in the middle and it's
quite ugly (and on a smallish display, quite inconvenient). I don't
consider it proper split-screen. No, the view that codewright has in the
single-file split screen mode is fine, but i'd like it with two SEPERATE
files. I sometimes switch to gvim (windows version) just to get proper
split screen.

   Oh, I see.  I'm fortunate to have a rather large monitor, so that
   hasn't been an issue for me.

   I assume you've already adjusted the window borders and titlebar
   size in Windows' Display Properties control panel to the minimum
   that you find acceptable... The "Full Screen" option (from
   Codewright's Window menu) will give you a lot of screen space,
   but if you're bothered by titlebars and window borders,
   Full-Screen Mode's much-more-noticeable effect on the display
   will probably bother you even more.

   Sounds as though the best solution would be to talk your company
   into buying you a larger monitor.

Me too... :)

Another reason (besides lacking multi-platform support) might be that it's
a dead product... Borland stopped supporting it, and possibly even stopped
selling it.

Yeah, that's their pattern... They bought Brief and let it die, too.

They do still sell Codewright, although they don't plan to release
any new versions of it.  Doesn't matter to me, though; the version I
have works fine.
