Configure Multiview Screen

Once the new screen matrix is created it needs to be configured. Hover over the desired screen and click the <edit layout> icon. Position the cursor over the desired cell and left click to open the <widget list>. Notice the cell turns blue. Depending on which cell you selected you may see some inward or outward facing arrows. Clicking an outward facing arrow expands the cell. Clicking an inward facing arrow reduces its size. The corner arrows expand or reduce the cell by factor of 4 maintaining the same aspect ratio. Arrows are only populated if the expand/reduce operation is permissible. For example in the figure below there are no inward facing arrows showing in the smaller widget cell. That indicates the cell cannot be shrunk. Likewise the larger cell does not have any out facing arrows at the bottom, because it is at the bottom of the screen and cannot be expanded in that direction.

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