Working Window
There are ways you can use the window and its components to your advantage while working on your tlx design file.

1) SPLIT YOUR PAGE, horizontally or vertically.
The HANDLES will not appear when you publish and are used only in the editing window.
They allow you to:
1) see two parts of the same page while editing (useful on LONG pages)
2) see two different pages while editing (to assist in copy and page, formatting, etc).
3) for quick movement back and forth between two pages in the same file


Here's how to do it: At the top center and at the left side center there is a little handle you may not have even noticed. Using your mouse, point to it and hold down the left mouse button to slide the handle so you see two copies of the same page. Click on the map or outline and poof! that page appears in the second window. You will have a separate scroll bar for each section of the window.   The TOP EDGE of the frame that is ACTIVE will be a different color (demonstrated with the YELLOW bar in the images below). If you have a split window, your outline and map will show that you have 2 yellow boxes!

Use the LEFT handle to get a VERTICAL split:
When you open the 2nd frame, you will see 2 of the same page scroll down to edit 2 sections at the same time.

Click the map and choose another page.

Use the TOP handle to get a HORIZONTAL split:
When you open the 2nd frame, you will see 2 of the same page scroll down to edit 2 sections at the same time.

2) Use your MAP to help you!
DESIGN: Right click the map to access several choices to insert LABEL (add text) or insert IMAGE or insert SHAPE to quickly identify your areas of the map. Once you add a shape or text, etc  you can right click it and choose colors for it and other options. For an example see this page for a map that includes all those elements to make it easier to use.
PLACEMENT: You can move the map to a fixed point on the side of your working window by grabbing the top edge of the map with your mouse while holding down your left button and dragging.
FLOAT: If you don't like your map at the top of your page, on the menu bar, you can choose MAP > FLOAT to make it release from the page.
SCROLL BARS:  Turn them on or off under the MAP option on the menu bar.  You can keep your map small but still be able to move around in it as necessary.

3) Use your OUTLINE to help you!
Some files are easier to navigate through using the OUTLINE instead of the MAP.  In that case close your map (press F9 to open/close map) and open your outline (press F11 to open/close outline).  Or you can use the VIEW...OUTLINE option on the menu bar.  Like the map, the outline shows all pages in the file, and the page you are on is shown as a yellow box. To change your window, just click the item on the outline.
