Line numbers are not displayed by default but, in this example, this feature has been enabled. See Changing your Editing Controls for details of how to set this up for the current session.

The File field shows the name of the file currently displayed in the File Editor pane. If a file is dirty, that is if you have changed the file since loading or saving, an asterisk (*) is appended to the end of the filename. Hold your mouse pointer over this field to see the full pathname.

The Source control button indicates the read/write status of the current file. Click this button to change the status of a file loaded into the File Editor. You can only edit the file if the Read-Write icon is displayed.

As each file is loaded into the File Editor, it creates a file tab in the File Editor pane. Click on the file tabs at the bottom of the File Editor pane to choose which file is currently visible. If a file has been edited, an asterisk (*) is appended to the front of the filename.
