Source File Windows

Each file you open will display in a separate source file window. Source Insight is a Multiple-Document-Interface (MDI) application. Each source file window has a symbol window on the left side. You can hide this window if you like.

When you open a source file, it appears in its own source file window. This window is where you do all of your regular editing. A source file window is an MDI window.

When you open a file that has a language attached, a Symbol Window will be attached to the left side of the source file window. You can control whether a Symbol Window is used by selecting Document Options and setting the Use symbol window check box accordingly. See also “Document Options”.
