Pluma question


I'm currently using Pluma (MATE) as my text editor. Since I am trying to learn CSS/HTML, I would like to open 2 different windows for a line by line comparison. Jumping between tabs is making me cross-eyed. Is that possible? Maybe a plugin or something?

Quite a few editors support a split screen, but I don't think Pluma does. See:

You might like Bluefish, which has many special features for HTML

Thanks guys! No matter what I did, Pluma won't do 2 windows, but it looks like Xed might. Now I know other options I can look at. I really need to compare that stuff so I can see what the differences are. Thanks again.

FYI-discovered accidentally that you can drag tabs from both Pluma and Xed and that will create a new window. I saved 2 tabs w/ the same info, did a drag n drop to the other side of the screen and presto, a new window. Just in case anyone needs to do that for some reason.

Thank you for that: 15 years and I've never noticed it! But I'm more of a keyboard than a mouse person.

Pluma has a Documents menu item (on the main menu bar). There's a "Move to New Window" item in that menu list that will
do exactly that: move the currently selected tab to a new window. The new window unfortunately has the exact same position as the old
one, so you have to move it to see both windows at once.

Unless there has been a regression in recent versions, that is more likely handled by your DE/window manager. If I use marco, the windows get positioned side by side unless there is another maximized program running underneath them, then the windows are halfway over top of one another. When using compiz, the behavior is a bit more predictable, but then again, I've edited the window management settings a bit over time.
