After download, run the tool by double click, then click on Open and select a directory from which you want to load all text files. All ASCII text files from that folder will be loaded, like all .txt, .ini, .html, readme or source code files. Create a second window by a right click somewhere in blank space, then select Clone View To Right. Now you see all text in two windows side by side. full screen toggling Click on "<>" in the right top or press F1 to toggle between "full screen" and normal-size display of the current view. It is F1 because this key is easiest to reach, and you will use this function PERMANENTLY. Searching through much text is a permanent change between comparing multiple parts and then reading (full-sized) through a single part. Within Depeche View, "full screen" does not literally mean the whole desktop screen, but only the whole visible area used by the program. master frame maximize With master frame mode active, you may click on the maximize button within the master frame, or press SHIFT+F1 to have it maximized to the whole desktop size. horizontal tiling Click on "=" or press F2 to toggle horizontal tiling. This mode can be used only with at least 2 views open. swapping view contents Press CONTROL+CURSOR LEFT to: - cycle the contents of multiple views left, or up in case of horizontal tiling. Press CONTROL+CURSOR RIGHT to: - cycle the contents of multiple views right, or down in case of horizontal tiling. extended views creation If you need a third (or even more) windows, click on the dotted button at the right top (near the square button). If assistance mode is NOT active, it is also possible to create another view quickly by pressing the LEFT and RIGHT mouse button together on blank space, within the current rightmost window. A third window opens, creating a triple column arrangement. The term NEARBY VIEW now gets a new meaning: in general, it is the view to the RIGHT, but if you're already in the rightmost view, it wraps around, and nearby then means the leftmost view. reset views, expand middle view Imagine you have 3 or more views open, one of them in fullscreen, some hidden in the background, and you start loosing the overview ... then try this: - DOUBLE CLICK on BLANK SPACE instantly stops all full screen displays, and rearranges all views in their default position and size. - IF the layout was reset already, and there are three views, then within the middle view, a double click into blank space will expand it by one step, or will undo this expansion. To change the step size, search the config file for an entry "expandweight".
