Description mvowada 2015-05-26 17:32:48 UTC
New views are bound to the original documents, so that they reflect the same changes.
I think it would be handy having also the chance to create independent new views for further editing and comparisons.

I think I've already heard about this proposal before, but I haven't managed to trace a specific report on this.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. It could be something like: (main menu) > "Windows" > "New Independent View"

Actual Results:  
For what I know a similar feature doesn't exist at the moment.

Expected Results:  
It would open a new "independent" view of the current document, sort of a start base for further editing and comparisons. To keep the changes you will have to save the document eventually.

I've just tried this brand new feature and for me it works very well and flawlessly both in "Tabs" and "Subwindows" modes.
Thank you very much for adding it and in no time at all! :)
