There is a way to get multiple snapshot views of a document.

File->Duplicate will make a second copy of a file and open it in a separate window. For safety's sake, I save the duplicate with a name like "delete-me". Once the file is saved with a name, you can click the "lock" checkbox.

I like the lock feature because if I start to edit in the wrong window I get a message warning me the document is locked.

It's not the same as multiple, editable, views of a document, but I think duplicates could be helpful in some situations.

I wanted to give this a bump. Of the features Mellel lacks this is the most significant for me yet probably one of the easiest to program. Please?

Just wanted to add my voice to those who have already requested this feature. It's one I regularly wish were available.

+1. This is important when you need to refer to a previous point in a document.

This seems to be one of the more popular requests, as it keeps coming back to the top of the forum. I really hope it isn't a hard one to implement.

+1000.

Really, when writing long documents, this is essential.

Edit.

Oops. I’ve already commented but forgot I did it. :P

Great idea. Or at least one sheet on which to have notes or excerpts always present in the layout

A duplicate post? You could've fooled me.

I thought it was a single comment.

(cough)

In split panes....

And what the developers say? Could it be done? And how long does it take to implement this?
