Multiple Windows to the Same File

Is it possible to have multiple windows to the same file? I tried the obvious, File -> Open, which just made the existing window the front. I often need to check something at one end of the file while editing the other end so having at least two windows to the same file is very useful.

This is something like the split-pane feature in Word. This has been a frequently requested feature, but is currently not really possible (as far as I know anyway) in NWP. Here's looking to 2.0 (or even 1.5 if NWE was any barometer).

Another alternative might be what WP calls a "quickmark" - I had posted on this in the beta forum shortly before it was archived...

It would be great to be able to add a 'quickmark' - a non-selected bookmark with a single keystroke / return to it with a single keystroke. In WP you can also set it to set the quickmark on file save and move to it on reopening a file.

In the Nisus Writer Pro Macros forum I posted a little macro that I use for this purpose. It does set a bookmark, but when you return to the place where you were, it is removed. I think it's under the topic "bookmarking with macros," or something like that.
