Is it possible to split the view in InDesign?


Question

I want to look at two parts of an InDesign document simultaneously. Is it possible to "split" the view in one window so that I can see the two parts together in one window?

edit: In CS5 at least, I can open a second window with the same document and arrange them side-by-side, which would really be good enough, except that command-tab application switching doesn't properly return focus to the active window in InDesign—when I command-tab back to InDesign, most keystrokes still go to the text frame that was active, but spaces in particular do not, until I click somewhere in that window or text frame.

What you're looking for is in Window > Arrange > New Window. That opens up a second window with the same document in it.
