Overview

The Multi-Screen Engineering tool is also known as Multiple Document Interface (MDI). MDI stands for a graphical user interface in which multiple windows reside under a single parent window. The Multi-Screen Engineering tool is available in two environments, Draw and Scripts.

MDI is a new engineering environment feature that allows the user to edit multiple displays or scripts at the same time. This makes it easier to copy content between documents, facilitate comparison between different documents, and decrease the switching time between documents that are being edited.

Draw Environment

In the Draw Editor tab (Edit -Draw-Drawing), the MDI enable button is in the toolbar located at the top of the display.

If the button is not available, close the current project, make sure a WebServer application is running, and launch the project again.

Once this button is clicked, a child window will open and the page will enter a locked state.



In Edit -Displays-Displays, you can see which users are editing a page.


Scripts Environment 

In the Scripts environment (Edit -Scripts-Tasks/Classes), the MDI enable button is in the toolbar located on the top of the display.

If the button is not available, close the current project, make sure a WebServer application is running, and launch the project again.

 

Once this button is clicked, a child window will open with the Code Editor environment.


In Edit -Scripts-Tasks/Classes, you can see which users are editing a page.


Switch Between Documents

On the project header bar, you can easily navigate through the last opened pages and code editors.

This feature provides easy access to the recently used information, enhances user experience, and improves the workflow.

This feature also allows you to close a document that is open in the last document bar.
