say I want to have source/target segments side by side. How do I do it without messing up my whole layout? If I choose Horizontal segment panes all panes are dispersed seemingly at random, the source/target pane running from the left to the right of my 27" screen. Not very comfortable. Will I have to reshape all the windows?
I must admit I switched back to a vertical segment view some weeks ago.
But to avoid having the horizontal segment panes from the very left to the very right, it might be a good idea
As you are an experienced CT user, you will know these hints anyway, so it might be helpful to see a screenshot.
For wide screens and the horizontal segment panes (from left to right), the layout 2 looks better.
1. Switch to View > Window layout > Window layout 2.
2. View > Segment panes > Horizontal segment panes.
3. Resize the panes to adjust them to your screen.
I think that pane settings are stored in the General settings that you can export via Edit > Options.
