Layout and Multi image functions allow dividing the view zone of the Viewer window for displaying the separate images in each division. It helps in analyzing and comparing the images.
The layout button divides the Viewers’ view zone into viewports. Select the desired layout under the extendible Layout menu and the view zone will be divided in the selected number of identical size viewports. To change the viewports size, point the mouse cursor to division line (the cursor should obtain the divider look), hold the mouse button down and drag the line:

NOTE! Double-click the left mouse button on the image for temporary viewing it on top of layout. Double-clicking the right mouse button on the enlarged image, returns to the previous layout.
NOTE! The layout selection is saved in browser’s local storage. If local storage does not contain the layout value, the layout is displayed according to the system settings.
Select the menu from Multi image button drop down list to open the selected number of series images in the active viewport. The viewport is automatically divided into the required number of sections. Each section is the same size and shows a separate image, starting from the active image and following towards the end of the series.

CAUTION! You cannot change the size of a particular image that is opened as one of multi-images. If the viewport size is changed, the size of multi-images is automatically adjusted.
NOTE! Image manipulation functions (ex. Scroll, Windowing, Rotate, Pan, Zoom) affect the entire set of multi-images that are opened in one viewport. For example, if you select Bone contrast mode for one of multi-images, it will apply the Bone mode to all images that are viewed as multiple images in viewport though the changes do not apply to the image in other viewports.
