I tend to be a simple text editor user, but when I want IDE-like features, I've been using Geany. One thing I find bothersome about it, though, is I can see only one file at a time. Sometimes I want to edit a .cpp file while looking at a .hpp file (or two) without flipping back and forth trying to memorize code.

(Of course the easy answer is to try a different IDE, but if I want to stick with geany for some good reason...then what?)

The Split Window plugin will allow you to have one document in one pane and switch between files in the other.
