Using Airmail in Split Screen mode.

1. Click and hold the green "full screen icon" in the top left corner of the app.

This blue block indicated where Airmail will be placed in the split screen mode. Release the mouse button to place Airmail.

3. On the opposite side of Airmail, you will notice all the open apps. Click on the app you would like to share the screen with. In the example below, we will use TextEdit for the example.
