4.4.2 Splitting Worksheet into Panels using Dividers

In Origin8.5.1, worksheets and matrix sheets can be split into panels using Dividers. You can scroll within each individual split panel while rows or columns in other panels remain visible.

You can split worksheet/matrix sheet from Origin's menu or by dragging the Divider.

Note that when the highlighted cell is in the first column or row, only the horizontal or vertical Divider can be created.
