Split View on iPad
Apple's Split View system on iPad allows you to open Ulysses and a second app, or even two Ulysses windows, side by side.
Ulysses’ Split Editor on Mac
Of course, you can have multiple Ulysses windows open side by side on your Mac. However, there is also the option to split the editor directly in the app, which makes working with two texts even more convenient.
You can easily recognize the text you are currently editing by its highlight. However, you can also switch off this feature by unchecking “Highlight Active Editor” in the Second Editor menu, accessible via the rings icon. Here, Ulysses also allows you to swap both editors, and to revert to the one editor view by closing the second editor.
Would you rather have a horizontal split than a vertical one? No problem, select the option “Second Editor on Bottom” in this menu.
Do you want to compare two texts? Hold ⌥ (option) during scrolling to move both editors simultaneously.
You can switch between the two editors without lifting your fingers from the keyboard: Use the shortcuts ⌘⌥→ and ⌘⌥← (command-option-right/left arrow).
It's up to you how much space you give each of the editors on your screen: drag the divider to left or right as you see fit. To split the available space evenly between both editors again, double-click the divider.
Full-Screen Split View on Mac
Apple’s system Split View on Mac lets you fill the screen with two apps or two Ulysses windows. This is particularly handy on smaller screens.
Let’s give it a try with the Ulysses editor and the export preview.
To set up for full-screen Split View, open the windows you want to display side by side. In our case, the editor and the export preview.
Hold your cursor over the green full-screen button in the upper-left corner of the editor (or any other window). Alternatively, you can click and hold the button.
Select ”Tile Window to Left of Screen” or ”Tile Window to Right of Screen” from the menu. Now the window fills the selected side of the screen. Then choose the export preview (or any other window), on the other side of the screen.
Now you can see the editor and the export preview side-by-side. If you need less space for the preview, you can adjust the window width by dragging the vertical line between the windows.
