Multiple files next to eachother

Question

Hi,

 

With the integration of multiple view panes in VW2018, I thought we would be able to open 2 different vwx files and place them next to eachother.

But if I have 2 files in VW2018, for example file A and B. When I create a floating view pane in file A and then reactivate file B in my mainwindow. The floating view pane of file A dissapears. It reappears when file A is reactivated.

 

What I'm trying to achieve is the following: have 2 windows of 2 different files open next to eachother. The screenshot below is made by opening File A in VW2018 and file B in VW2017:

Wouldn't it be great if we could create a seperate viewpane by dragging the tab of a file out of the mainwindow?

For example: If we drag the tab untitled6 out, it creates a viewpane containing untitled6 and Untitled5 stays active in the mainwindow?

Thank you,

Bert

You have dual monitors? If you make the whole VW window floating then stretch it out across the two screens you can then have floating Windows of different files inside the main VW window. Pretty much like in your image.

Hi Boh,

 

Thank you for your suggestion! That's a bit of strange approach to drag vectorworks over 2 screens but yes, that actually works! :)
