The purpose of my question is this: I am working on the next edition of
my two-language dictionary and want to be able to see two views of the
same document. This is very important since in one of the views I can
enter text, whereas in the other view I can do independent searches. In
MS Word, it was a trivial matter to split the screen vertically into an
upper and a lower section.

Your suggestion of selecting New Window works like a charm! As a matter
of fact, it’s an even better solution than splitting the screen since it
gives me the scope of seeing two full versions of the same document. I
couldn’t ask for anything more than that!

Thank you very much for your email.

I don't know what the purpose of your question is, but if for example to
have one part
displaying page 1 and in the other part editing page 20 that could be
achieved by:

In the open writer document go to Windows in the top menu and select New
Window now
you have two windows of the same document and are able to scroll on both
windows to
two different pages in the same document.
