Multiple project tabs visible simultaneously?


Nick Pecher

Question

Hey all,

 

I'm using VW 2024 on Windows 10, and am trying to have multiple projects visible on my screen open at the same time (so I can reference one while working on the other). Is there an option within VW that enables this?

In other programs, like Photoshop, I can undock the project tabs and look at multiple windows at the same time. Hoping for something like that.

Have you considered referencing the project into your active document?  That’s a lot better than having multiple screens open if you are trying to do side by side comparison.  You could then also use multiview to do side by side comparison as well if it’s a busy drawing.  In Mac VWX, you can undock tabs, not sure about windows… not that I’ve found it useful compared to the methods mentioned earlier.

Hey Jeff,

 

I'm essentially doing that already, but there's another file I'd like to have the ability to look at in a separate window. I'm working on a project that has a fair number of duplicate objects from a prior project, and I'd like to be able to reuse as many as possible. It's almost like one of those "spot the difference" puzzles.

@Jeff Prince But what happens when you click into the drawing on the left?

 

For me unless I have resized it to only take up 1/2 the screen it comes to the front and hides the right drawing.

 

I can see times where it would be nice to be able to have a floating non-active drawing window have an always on top option.

the window you clink on becomes active.  On a single monitor, you just arrange them like other windows, leave a bit visible so you have something to click on if you don’t do a 50/50 split. @Rolan Castaneda is right about it being useful on multiple monitors.

 

Moving a free floating window the an iPad Pro using sidecar might be a nice way to use the functionality if you don't have real dual monitors.

Here's what it looks like in Mac....

Doesn't work for me in Windows.
I can have multiple tabs but I can't peel them off and have 2 side-by-side.

Unless I am doing something dumb (which is very likely)

Correct, Windows doesn't allow me to set up a view like that.

 

Would be great to have that functionality in the future, though.
