Configure Multiview Screen

Once the new screen matrix is created it needs to be configured. Position the cursor at any cell. Left click to open the <widget list>. Depending on which cell you selected the blue icon may have one or more inward or outward facing arrows in each corner. Clicking an outward facing arrow expands the cell by a factor of 4 while maintaining the same aspect ratio.

Clicking an inward facing arrow reduces size by a factor of four. Arrows are only populated if the expand/reduce operation is permissible. For example in the figure below note there are no inward facing arrows showing in the upper blue box. That indicates the box cannot be shrunk. Likewise the larger box at the bottom of the figure has only a single outward facing arrow, bottom right. That is the only direction with cells it is able to expand into.

Once you create a widget you are not able to reposition it directly. If you need to move a widget, <Delete> (right click on the widget) it and recreate a new widget.
