Just type 'new' on the command-line before pressing PF2, or change PF2 to "split new" and you can have up to (site_dependent!) 32 screens. Default is 8 I think.

Likewise, you can use PF9 to swap between more than two screens via:

LIST PF9 (SWAP LIST) - shows all screens in a pop-up
PREV PF9 (SWAP PREV) - previous screen
NEXT PF9 (SWAP NEXT) - next screen

Alternatively, you can give screens a name via the SCRNAME command and use SWAP name

You can also use thecommand to start another split screen. The advantage over
SPLIT NEW
is that you can directly start the new application with the START command. E.g.
START SDSF
START 3.4
START RMF
etc. And you can use the logical screen number with the SWAP PF key (PF9). Type the number in the command line and hit PF9. If you know that SDSF is running in logical screen 3, type 3 in the command line and hit PF9 to jump to this screen.

I suggest you turn the SWAPBAR on when working with more than two screens. Makes is easier to see which application is running in which screen.
