The KDE environment has Kate (KDE Advanced Text Editor) instead of gEdit. In this article I will show you the key combination shortcuts for vertical and horizontal screen splitting.
I use both gEdit and Kate, but I find Kate more powerfull than the Gnome’s equivalent (gEdit).
Install KDE Advanced Text Editor (Kate):
If you are a Gnome user, you can install KDE’s Kate:
Debian, Ubuntu, Linux Mint installation:
- sudo apt-get install kate
Fedora, CentOS installation:
- sudo yum install kate
- sudo zypper install kate
Split Screen Shortcuts:
Shortcuts for screen splitting in Kate Text Editor:
Vertical Splitting: Ctrl – Shift – L
Horizontal Splitting: Ctrl – Shift – T
Switch between windows: F8 and Shift – F8
Close current window: Ctrl – Shift – R
You can also split the screen from Kate’s Menu:
View -> Split View -> Split Vertical
OR: View -> Split View -> Split Horizontal
