Moving tabs to other windows

You can move tabs to another open window of the same project to show the corresponding layouts in a new window. For example, if you want to compare two layouts on two displays.

  • The layouts must belong to the same project. If you attempt to move a tab to a window of a different project, a new window is created for the project to which the layout belongs.

  • You can only move tabs to other windows if you have opened at least two tabs.


  • Do one of the following:
    • To create a new project window with the tab inserted, either click and drag the tab away from the tab bar and release it, or choose Window > Move Tab To New Window. You can also right-click tabs and choose this option from the context menu.

    • To move the tab to an existing project window, click and drag the tab onto the tab bar in the corresponding project window.
