Umm, if two Text (.odt) documents have not changed dramatically, does not

changed from another document?

       I wish this were true ... using WIN [now 7], it's not  ;-(

       To be able to compare 2 versions side by side would be an asset -
often, I've wanted to remember how something was worded ... so I have to
close the document, open the other document then reverse the process
because both versions cannot be open at the same time -
             I've tried minimizing one document but it closes on its own
when the next document is opened -

       the computer is always a step ahead of me  ;-)

Ubuntu there are some programs to do the same

Hi :)
Side-by-side is fairly easy on Win7 and Ubuntu 12.04.  Not sure about
others but it's got to have originated somewhere and is probably on the
cards elsewhere.  Not sure about synchronised scrolling though, that part
sounds like a good item for a feature-request / bug-report.

So, in Ubuntu 12.04 and Win7 just grab the first document's window and
drag it to the far left as though you are dragging it off-screen.  When a
weird shadow fills half the screen let go.  Whatever size and shape the
windo had been it now fills half the screen.  Do the same to the 2nd
document's window but drag it to the right.  Errr i choose left first
because it feels more comfortable to me.  If you try to drag it off the
of the screen then the window tries to maximise.

Of course you could use Alt Tab to flick between any windows on the
workspace you are on and that can be a good way to compare quickly.

Most Gnu&Linux distros also let you flick between different work-spaces
quickly so changes jump out at you that way too.  Windows users probably
aren't familiar with the spinning cube (which i can never get to work).
course Ubuntu kinda lost that quick flick between workspaces in 11.04
Unity (unless i'm missing a key-combo (which is highly likely))

This would realy be a good feature. I also miss the possibility to
compare to documents side by side
and synchronized scrolling. I hate to say it but this is a good
of MSO. Just hope that our
devs can add ti to LibO.

I agree. I also miss being able to split a document horizontally in
halves. It's very useful when going through a big document.
