Xcode 4 Splits

One of the features Apple took away in Xcode 4 was splits.

rentzsch / @rentzsch:

predicted headline feature of Xcode 5: splits

But it turns out you can clumsily emulate them with Xcode 4’s Assistant Editors:

kongtomorrow / @kongtomorrow:

like text splits? already there. View > Assistant Editor > Add Assistant Editor (and various shortcuts)

rentzsch / @rentzsch:

that only works when you have an assistant editor showing. Very rarely that I do. Need it for standard editor

Troy Gaul / @tgaul:

You can open the same file in the assistant editor and then stack the editors vertically in your window.

kongtomorrow / @kongtomorrow:

ooh, thanks, thought that was there somewhere. View > Assistant Editor > All Editors Stacked Vertically

rentzsch / @rentzsch:

ah that’s clumsy, but it will work when I’m desperate. Thanks!
