File Menu: Slave Window Next

The Slave Window function is used to create an additional editing window that is in a separate family group from and is subservient to the current window. A slave windows is always displayed "on top" of its master window. Within the Microsoft Windows jargon, a slave window is referred to as a "unclipped child" window. Opened data files are not shared between master and slave.

Slave windows are spontaneously created by OmniGlyph by several functions that require processing power that exceeds the capability of a normal "dialog box". This Examples of slave windows are log files and interactive report files.

Keyboard and editing focus will automatically switch between master and slave when the arrow cursor is moved over the respective window. Only one slave window is allowed per master.
