I am a fan of Vim, but I have also used Joe a few times.

Split screen horizontally: Ctrl-ko

Toggle between windows:

  • Switch to the previous window: Ctrl-kp
  • Switch to the next window: Ctrl-kn

Open new file in current window: Ctrl-ke

Modify the height of the current window:

  • Increase the window height: Ctrl-kg
  • Decrease the window height: Ctrl-kt

Hide all windows except the current one (press twice to show all the windows again): Ctrl-ki
