yes, on Apple's MacIntosh, this is simple ... it's one of the advantages, I've discovered in finally making the decision to purchase ;-) on MsFt's, it's a matter of re-sizing each window then keeping each running. ;-)

How is this "simple" on Macintosh, please? It's a well established idea, I think, that aficionados of Apple systems often prefer them through genuinely held but erroneous notions of what other operating systems cannot do. See . So it's fair that we should enquire.

If you don't have two windows, how do you see two sheets? That would have to be a facility in LibreOffice itself, which I don't see exists. In any case, if it did it would exist equally under different operating systems.

If there are two windows and you don't have both windows running, they cannot be operative and functional: nothing can work. (And you don't have to "keep each running": they do this by themselves!) If you have two windows each running in the same instance of LibreOffice, how is this different from what happens under Windows? And from what happens under Linux?

Are you able to explain in detail, please, exactly what you think Mac OS will do for you in this context - and how you achieve it - that isn't provided by other operating systems?

Or can anyone else confirm the advantage and explain the difference?
