BlueGriffon Comments

No split view

Negative Comment by viktor_is_hot
about BlueGriffon Jan 2017

I prefer to have spit view when working with code but BlueGriffon does not seem to have this. This is deeply disappointing because I find it extremely irritating to switch between views, it disrupts workflow for me. Apparently, it used to be available as a plugin you had to buy called ActiveView but that no longer exists and it looks like all previous plugins don't work for this recent version (2.1.1) according to their site. So, I'm a bit iffy about this program especially when you also have to buy the user manual, plugins I understand, but not the very thing that helps you use it.
