Atlantis has a special feature that will come in handy when you are working on two different versions of the same document (for example, on two versions of a document created by the Backup Files of Atlantis), or on the translation of a document. This feature will be also helpful when you have multiple documents open in Atlantis, and you want to work on two of the open documents without closing the other open documents.
This special feature is called "View side by side". It can be accessed through the "Window" menu
The main menu or simply menu is a horizontal bar with clickable commands anchored to the top of the main window of Atlantis:
in Atlantis. Depending on how many documents are currently open in Atlantis, the caption of this command under the "Windows" menu The main menu or simply menu is a horizontal bar with clickable commands anchored to the top of the main window of Atlantis:
can be different. When you have only two open documents in Atlantis (for example, Doc01.rtf and Doc02.rtf), the caption of this command would look in the following way:
In our above example, clicking this menu command would show the active document Doc01.rtf and Doc02.rtf in the "View side by Side" mode.
When more than two documents are open in Atlantis, the caption of this command looks in this way:
Clicking this command brings up a dialog where you can choose which other document you want displayed side by side with the currently active document.
So when you use the "View Side By Side" menu command, Atlantis tiles two selected documents (one of them is always the currently active document) vertically or horizontally (displays them "side by side").
When two documents are displayed "side by side" (ie when the "View side by side" mode is on), Atlantis displays a small floating toolbar:
The following table lists all the commands of this popup toolbar:
When this button is checked, both documents are scrolled in synchrony so that matching portions of the documents are displayed. Also both documents share the same zooming factor. Changing the zooming factor for one document automatically changes the zooming factor for the other document.
The "Synchronized scrolling" can be used in 2 different ways:
