🔥 VSCode Grid Editor Layout Is Here!

mrahmadawais profile image Ahmad Awais ⚡️ Updated on ・1 min read

VSCode just got June's update 🌞 v1.25 and finally it has the "Grid Editor Layout" feature, I was so looking forward to. I'm lovin' it!

🔥 Check: VSCode.pro/TIP/14 →
✅ Drag & Drop Grid Creator
🏗️ Horizontal/Vertical Layout
💜 Use on large Monitors or in Conf talks

You can now arrange 🆚Code's editors both vertically and horizontally and have more than 3 editors side by side layout.

This is a super fun feature for when you have a large external monitor and also when you are presenting at a conference.

Just drag and drop your files in up/down/right/left position to easily open up editors in the grid layout. There is also a predefined set of editor layouts in the new > menu. Use your code for good.

I really wish I had a bigger screen to make the most of this. Somehow I don't think I be using this feature too often on a 14" laptop screen.

I use it on 55 inch LED 4K. Love it. Especially for small meetups. 💜

You shuld look up to "force resolution". In Linux I know it's with xrandr.

My 14" Laptop Screen had the 1366x768, and I forced to 1600x900. :D

Can you also use this feature for re-arranging things like the outline? Or can you only arrange editor windows?

Not a PhpStorm user, but if you're thinking about switching to VSCode, I'm releasing a course called VSCode.pro to help users switch to VSCode.
