cant split screen horizontally

I’m using blender 2.42a on winxp.

I joined areas into one big one to do some complex vert welding, and now can’t get a horizontal split to get my button window back at the bottom. All i can do is make vertical splits! :slight_smile:

When i hover the mouse pointer at bottom of screen it picks up on the windows bar (taskbar is this called?) and its kinda redundant ability to resize upwards.

Is there a way to restore the default layout or some other way of getting horizontal splits?


ok the solution is to hover the pointer over the side of the UI. and MMB.

duhhh… (it is late, and i have no caffeine…)
