iOS Question

How can I enable vertical split views in the Xcode IDE?

I'm diving into iOS development and I'm using Xcode on a multi-monitor setup. Obviously I want to take advantage of the multiple monitors to view and edit multiple panes of source code, but I'm having a hard time figuring out how to enable vertical split views. In other IDEs, it's just an option you click in the "Window" menu. How do I enable vertical split views in Xcode?

Thanks so much in advance!


Xcode 4

Check out the options in the Navigate file menu item. I like Command+J. Also, while the Editor is active, i.e., you're editing code or your cursor is blinking in the Editor, press Command+Option+,. Or, you can Option-click (or Option+Shift-click) a file in the Navigator. Then, to make more room for editing, I like to press Command+0 to hide the Navigator and, if they're not already hidden, Command+Option+0 to hide the Utilities. Press Command+Enter to go back to the Standard Editor view.

Xcode 3

Hold down alt and click the little tiny box (with a horizontal line through it) in the upper-right-hand corner of the screen. It's underneath the tiny little lock icon.
