Split Visual Studio windows horizontally and vertically the at same time.
It would be nice if you could split Visual Studio windows horizontally and vertically (read: create a vertical tab group on a horizontal tab group and vice versa) the at same time as display size increases constantly.
So you'll be able to have a arrangement of your files like http://jsfiddle.net/ provides.
While we don’t have concrete plans to share yet, I wanted to let you know that we recently started discussions about potentially supporting this scenario.
I’ll provide an update once I have more concrete information to share.

Wide screen monitors were merely a trend when this Suggestion was opened. Now it's reality. No one has a 1200 high monitor but more horizontal space than needed.
Hi, I cannot believe that this important feature does not exist already. Not be able to dock windows horizontally and vertically at the same time, means less productivity for your users.
What did Steve Ballmer say: "Developers, Developers, Developers, Developers.....".
Thanks for the update. Not having the feature right now is merely an inconvenience when I get my dream 35 inch 8k curved desktop monitor it is going to be a deal beaker.

I'm surprised and disappointed that 5 years later this still isn't possible. The workaround of resizing the main application and putting the horizontally split windows outside of it is suboptimal.
great minds think alike
I need this for my 4k (UHD) Desktop...

The two-axis split feature is very much required.

A short term solution is to drag a tab to a new window. I use a 4K monitor with VS.net docked to the left side of the screen using a horizontal split. Then drag and dock a code tab to the right side of the screen and create another horizontal split, effectively emulating the jsfiddle.net view. There are problems with this approach (window management, standalone windows don't show previews, etc.), but it's better than nothing.
Yes Please. With large size and resolution monitors nowadays, being able to have both styles of tab groups at the same time would be very helpful. I have many colleagues who agree, we all speak through this one post
Please add. With the advent of larger and higher resolution monitors, this feature is a must

plz plz plz add this feature. i love visual studio but when i work on some complex project and i need this feature i go with netbens . they already implemented this future. but me and many many many user want to get this power . but they don't know how as well as they don'know about this site also .
so for all of us who loves this featureand visual studio for them make it faster
as we get higher and higher monitor resolutions (now 4K) having horizontal AND vertical tab groups at the same time becomes increasingly important. I hope this gets implemented soon
Horizontal split is in Visual Studio 2015. Saw a screenshot of it in MSDN Mag.
yes ******** it!!! thats one thing i love about webstorm and miss it in vc

Currently you can create multiple horizontal tab groups OR multiple vertical tab groups. It would be nice to have the possibility to create vertical tab groups within a horzontal tab group. For instance like the layout at jsfiddle.net.
Agreed. As a daily VS user with a very large desktop screen, and a new laptop with fantastically high resolution, being unable to split document windows horizontally and vertically simultaneously is a huge waste of space.
As Daniel hints at, perhaps take a tiny smidge of dev resource off the latest whiz-bang flavor-of-the-week technology, and implement this extremely simple but useful piece of functionality? Come on, MS! You're better than this!
For web development, it is very handy to be able to do vertical and horizontal split at the same time.
Editors like Sublime, VIM, and IDE like JetBrain have this kind of feature.
Please enable this feature.
It would be a shame if sharp develop implement it.
Visual Studio 2013 released, but still no support for this feature. Got clouds storage and other modern toys but still no freakin split support. Even 20 year old console editors can do mixed splits. Very dissapointing.
