Multiview[edit]

While you can not move the tabs to their own position, you can get a more complete look at your track with Multiview, as shown in the graphic below.

In the next graphic, we are looking at the same track under three different tabs at the same time.

To view more than one tab at once, open a song and select “New Window” from the Window menu. This opens an auxiliary window of the current track, which you can reposition and resize inside ModPlug’s window. From here you can choose one tab, such as the General page, in one window, and the Pattern page in the other window. You can even open a window for each tab using the same method. To autoposition the windows, you can choose one of the functions in the Window menu — Cascade, Tile Horizontally, or Tile Vertically.

At the time of writing, there is one important limitations, though: Only one window can currently receive position updates, so if for example a pattern view is focussed, the Sample, and Instrument pages will not get any position updates and thus cannot update their position marks.
