    I like to use editors like vim and atom to view and edit multiple parts of a project at once.

    It would be great to be able to do the same thing with workflowy on the desktop or web app.  

    Proposed workflow would be to have a keyboard shortcut that would split the current pane either vertically or horizontally into two panes.

    You can split a screen on a Mac or iPad to see 2 columns using the native OS - no extra help needed from Workflowy

    You can open two browser windows e.g. in Firefox I know you can drag a tab onto another screen or you can open #firefox twice.  Then you can work on both screens/windows.  It might not be ideal but that's a further solution.

    To my mind, the real potential of a dual-pane view would be for organising notes (i.e. being able to drag bullets between panes). Not sure whether that's what you mean by this though.

    2 column view with alias feature please!

    option-drag (for example) item from left column/view to right column/view creates alias

    reorder/hide alias as desired

    edit alias edits original

    Moo.do style panes allowing multiple views into the list zoomed into different locations.  Items can be dragged and dropped between panes.

    You can just use Firefox Side View or two windows side-by-side. It's not hard to copy and paste between the two, I'd rather their bandwidth be saved for more expansive features.

    Cut and Paste between panes creates new bullets which means it breaks links to those bullets.  Drag and drop within the list in a single pane doesn't have that problem.  Also, drag and drop is not supported between browser tabs.  It would actually be awesome to be able to use multiple browser tabs in whatever configuration I wanted if drag and drop between tabs worked the same as drag and drop within a single tab.

    @Aaron I use the Workflowy desktop app for OSX, and am requesting a side-by-side view within that app.  

    @James:  yes organizing notes is the primary use case for me

    Could also be multi-panes, as in the Moo.do app. This feature is amazing!

    I too would like to see this feature. 

    Long lists are notoriously hard to reorder.

    Additionally, it would be great to do this between windows, so you could have two completely different lists.

    I've thought it would be a good idea for years now, only just now looking to log it as a feature request.

    Even I had also requested (two windows) for workflowy!!
    Copying and pasting becomes so much problematic, when you have long list to maintain!

    Everyone; I've created a Bookmarklet that provides a poor-man's "dual view" with two iframes.

    I use it to keep focus with a "Do now" list alongside all my other tasks:



    Unfortunately, you can't drag between them, but you can copy paste.

    Additionally, each panel remembers its location for when you load the page next time!

    The script and instructions to install it are here:
