Re: set "Split View" as default

Hello,

Today I checked with a more recent version 8.0.332.0 (not the latest) of PDF-XChange Editor on another computer and I must admit that, with that version, it does not work anymore. Some fixes since version 7.0.326 (the one that works for me) must have broken the required functionality.
