Working with Multiple Documents

You can switch between open documents by selecting a window to make it active, or by indicating which window you would like to view through the Window pull-down menu in the Menu bar. You can also use the SHIFT+CNTRL+TAB to toggle forward and the CNTRL+TAB key to toggle backward between multiple documents.

Some functions are session specific, meaning they pertain to all open documents. However, most are part specific, and only work on the currently active document.

In the list below, elements have been separated into three classifications: Session Specific, Part Specific and Viewport Specific. Those that are Session Specific are not saved with the document. Those that are Part Specific are saved with the document.
