Hi, :-)

One thing missing from LibO is the ability to split one window showing
2 / 3 / X different docs... I spend a lot of time proofreading and
comparing docs...

Although you can't put up two documents in one window, you can have
two windows open, either for different docs or for different views of
the same doc, and arrange them on the screen however you like. Of
course, it helps if you have a large monitor (mine is 27"). I don't
see any advantage of one window with multiple docs, though I'll admit
it's been many years since I used a program that did that so I may be
missing something. What *is* the advantage from your POV?

This is how it used to be some time ago in MSO (and I think OOo): multiple documents tiled/cascading inside one program window, with *one set of toolbars and menus* - thus maximizing screen estate.

Can be confusing if the theme does not distinguish well between active/inactive documents, but quite productive if you got many or long toolbars (say Anapraseus for translations) arranged along the top of the main window.

Arranging two docs side by side with two sets of toolbars/menus make the menus wrap/be partially hidden.
