Vertical bar with Raster/Vector

Recommended Posts


I hope it is okay if I post this question as I am not sure where else I could find out. While I was cleaning my keyboard this morning I must have pushed a combination of buttons because a vertical bar came up with Raster/Vector tabs on either side if it. What is this exactly? I have tried to look through the AD help file but it is kind of difficult when I do not even know what I am looking for :) Could someone please explain to me what this if possible or how do I get it back so i can see what it is all about? I apologize if this is over simplistic.

Thank you so much for any help!

Sounds like you enabled View > View Mode > Split View (which on Windows seems to have a default shortcut of ",").

More info in the Help topic for Viewing.

The default shortcut is the same on Macs, the comma key.
