Tile Top/Bottom Left/Right

4. Tile Top/Bottom Left/Right
These two commands allow you to place the TreeView above the Everything Report, or to the left of the Everything Report. Only one of these two commands is active at any time, since you are always in one mode or the other.
 
Putting the TreeView on the left of the Everything Report makes it look like the standard Explorer window. If you find too many of your tree items are cut off, or if you'd like more width to your Everything Report, you might want to switch your view to top and bottom. You can switch any time you want. Behold will remember the setting you last used the next time it starts.

When hidden text is displayed, it is shown in grey text.  When it is not displayed, then it is hidden.
 
Printing or exporting the report will look exactly like the screen - in other words, hidden text will either be included in grey or not included depending on this setting.

This command instantly toggles the view between the two modes.
