Single Channel View

When opening just:in for the first time it will present a single View. Basically you can connect to one Channel now. It's possible to display multiple Channels at once by using the Split & Join functionality of just:in.

Splitting a Channel View

  1. Select the View by clicking it once, the border will turn turquoise. Make sure you don't click the button in the middle.


  2. Select the menu command Channel → Split or use the shortcut shift + command + S.


  3. Four views are now displayed. You can connect each View to a Channel as described in the previous chapters.


  4. You may repeat these steps for each View to create further Views.

    Each Channel View has a minimum size. Splitting an existing Channel View is not possible if the resulting four new Channel Views would be smaller than 201x111 pixels each.

Joining a Channel View

Joining a Channel View is only possible when all respective Channel Views are disconnected from a Channel.


  1. Select a View by clicking it once, the border will turn turquoise. Make sure you don't click the button in the middle.


  2. Select the menu command Channel → Join or use the shortcut shift + command + J.


  3. The previously available four Channel Views have been reduced to one Channel View.

Moving Channel Views

Drag and drop a Channel View to another Channel View. You may drop it on a disconnected Channel View or a connected Channel View. The Channel Views will then be interchanged accordingly.
