Jarte's document tabs allow you to open multiple documents by providing a separate tab for each document. Each tab displays the document's file name, or is blank for new documents. Simply click on any tab to switch to the desired document. Switching between tabs can be done without clicking by turning on option Clickless Tabs.

The tabs can be reordered by drag-and-dropping individual tabs to the desired position. Tabs can be closed by either clicking the active tab's Close button, or by double clicking the tab. The active tab's Close button can be made "clickless" by turning on option option Clickless Tab Close Button.

Tips:

Moving the mouse over a tab while pressing the Shift key causes the full file path of the document to be displayed in Jarte's title bar.
Double clicking an empty section of the tab bar begins a new document.
Right clicking in the document tabs area accesses the Manage Tabs submenu.
The document tabs can be automatically hidden when there is only a single open document by using advanced setting Auto Tabs.

Navigating Tabs

The Manage Tabs submenu includes a number of functions used to navigate between tabs and reorder tabs. These can be especially useful when working with a large number of tabs.

Copy to Clipboard

The Manage Tabs submenu provides functions that copy the file name of active tab to the Windows clipboard:

Copy File Name - Copies the file name of the current document to the clipboard (e.g., copies "My To Do List.doc" to the clipboard if the current document is "C:\My Documents\My To Do List.doc").

Copy Folder Path - Copies the folder path of the current document to the clipboard (e.g., copies "C:\My Documents" to the clipboard if the current document is "C:\My Documents\My To Do List.doc").

Copy Full File Path - Copies the entire file path of the current document to the clipboard (e.g., copies "C:\My Documents\My To Do List.doc" to the clipboard if that is the path of the current document).

Windows Utilities

The Manage Tabs submenu provides shortcuts to the following Windows utilities:

Windows Explorer - Opens a Windows Explorer window positioned on the folder that contains the current document.

Command Prompt - Opens a Windows command prompt window positioned on the folder that contains the current document.

Options

The Manage Tabs submenu provides the following options:

Large Tabs - Increases the size and font of the document tabs to make them easier to read. This option is in effect by default, and can not be turned off, if the current Windows settings are set to use a large font for windows and controls.

Close Tab on Double Click - Controls whether document tabs can be closed with a double mouse click.

Show Tab Close Button - Controls whether the Close button is displayed on the current tab.

Flat Tabs - Controls whether the tabs have a subtle 3-D appearance or whether they have a simple flat appearance.

Align Tabs to Center - Controls whether the tabs are centered on the tab bar or aligned to the left.

Abbreviate Tabs - Controls whether the file names in the tabs are abbreviated if necessary to ensure they all fit within the width of the program window.

Split View

Main menu:

Window > Split View

Compact layout:

Tabs > Split View

Classic layout:

Tabs > Split View

 

 

Split View allows two documents to be displayed simultaneously so they can be easily compared or edited together. The documents can be displayed either side-by-side or one over the other. The divider between the two documents can be moved with the mouse to give more screen space to one document or the other.

If there is only one open document then Split View will open a second view of that document. This allows you to view two locations of the same document at the same time. Note that in this case the second view is a read-only view which can not be modified. If there are multiple documents open and you want to split a single document into two views then press the Shift while entering split view mode.

Swap Views - This feature causes the two views in split view mode to switch positions.

Scroll Views in Tandem - This feature causes both document views to scroll simultaneously when either document is scrolled.
