I know there's a way to take a view, and then put different slices into different panes in Panels or Page Manager. I've done it before, but not for a few years now.
I thought it was something that Views and Panels did 'out of the box', and I'm sure the Context module stopped being necessary a few years ago, but it's possible that's changed. I'm sure it involved a special type of views display (not blocks or pages, I think it was called a context display) then loading the view as a context in Panels/Page Manager. Then, each pane had appropriate options to choose the range of records e.g. 1-3 in one, then 4-6 in another, etc.
However, I have no such options in Views or Panels, and despite having a wealth of possible search terms here, I can't find the crucial step to enable this. It doesn't help that the word context is used in so many other contexts, I'm getting a wall of unrelated search results.
Did I remember this right, and if so, what do I need to do to access this "context display mode" in views that allows me to chop up the view in Panels?
