How can I make html documents open in split view every time?

Whenever I have no documents open, and I open a bunch from the Files toolbar, they ALWAYS all open up in code view. The only way I know to get them all to open in split view is to open one up, change it to split view, and THEN open all of the other documents.

Is there a way to set split view as the default view?

There are no official settings inside Dreamweaver to do this

However there do have a tricky way to do so
But this method is not 100% work in different machines
Still you may try

- First open Dreamweaver
- open any document
- change to split mode
- close Dreamweaver together with the document
(it means DO NOT close the document first and then close Dreamweaver)
- reopen Dreamweaver
- open the multiple files that you want to edit in split mode

The steps are crazy but it works fine for me~ :p
