RubyMine 6.3.0 Web Help

Splitting the editor window divides it into independent panes. You can split the editor window into as many panes as required, each one containing multiple tabs.

Each pane can be allocated vertically or horizontally. Thus, splitting helps create different editor layouts, organize tabs into groups, and edit multiple files simultaneously. For example, you can scroll through a part of a file, having at the same time the possibility to view the lines in its other part.
