Split editor window bar missing

In build 3370 the horizontal bar that allowed you (Intellij 4.5) to split the editor window into two parts on the same file has gone.

Is this supposed to be gone. I know its possible to do roughly the same thing with the split editor commands however I really liked the quickness and neatness of the horizontal bar.

Does anyone know?

on the toolbar,select window,or alt+w,
you will see "Split Horizontally" and "Split Vertically".

better than 4.5.3,a file can be split into more than 2 parts

And for the love of ¤% don't bring back that ugly and useless waste of space!

Thanks for the replies. Its true that split horizontal and vertical do the same thing and more...However in 4.5 you had both (although it could only split once).

It seems a shame to lose functionality. If people don't like it then it could be optional. Personally i thought it was great and it takes up much less real-estate, very good for comparing blocks of code.

Would anyone else like this feature to return?

But.. you have not lost any functionality, you've gained some otoh. The difference is that you don't actually need a button/toolthingie to activate that feature today. Learn the shortcut or use the menu. Personally I right-click the tab in question everytime I need it. Works like a charm.
