Lesson 4.1. Using Split Views

Figure 4-1. A split view


Figure 4-2. A split view with Gantt Chart view on top and Tracking Gantt view on the bottom.


You may find that a single view does not display all the information you want to see. In these instances, a split view might be the solution to your problem. A split view displays two views of the project in the same window. For example, you could display Gantt Chart view in the top half of the window and Task Form view in the bottom, to view detailed information about a selected task.

This lesson will show you how to use a split view.

  1. Navigate to your Practice folder and open Lesson 4. Save the file as Viewing.

    Some views are created to be split, such as Resource Allocation view.

  2. Select the Write XML-based lessons task and select Window The window splits in two, and more information about the selected task is shown in the bottom half of the window, as shown in Figure 4-1.

    Notice that the bottom view isn't a view you've seen before. This is Task Form view, which is the default view when a window is split. It displays more information on the task or resource that is selected in the top view. Right-click the Task Form view to see different information about the selected resource or task.

  3. Click in the bottom pane of the window.

    To display a different view in the pane, you must first select it.

  4. Select View The Tracking Gantt view is displayed in the bottom pane, as shown in Figure 4-2.

    The Tracking Gantt view in the bottom pane displays the task and the amount of work performed on the task.

    As you begin tracking and making changes to your project, you will find splitting views to be more useful.
