Description magrawal 2003-10-26 14:52:58 UTC
The attached screenshot is from SO7. I miss a 2-page view where I can see 2 pages side-by-side. I tried zooming down to see if OO would try to fit 2 or more pages side-by-side but without success. If you notice in the attached image, there is so much blank space on the right side that could have been used to show 2 pages side-by-side. I would suggest that zoom should have an option to show 2 complete pages side-by-side. It is useful on many modern desktops with large screens.

Hi magrawal, did this help you? I'll wait until 12/03/2003 to get a comment from you that this wasn't what you wanted to get... If there's no new comment from you I'll assume that this was what you wanted... set to worksforme...

Well, after some thinking, I relaized that we are talking about 2 different things. The screenshot you posted is from File -> Page preview. I am talking about View -> Zoom. I do think that a zoom setting of 2 pages is very useful. The reason is simple, many users now have 17' screens, and we like to be able to edit a document while seeing 2 pages at a time, particularly in the closing stages of a document. This way, we get a preview of the document, while we still have editing privileges. Essentially, all I am suggesting is that when documents are zoomed out using View -> zoom (not File -> Page preview), they should be laid out horizontally instead of vertically, this will make very good use of screen real-estate.

Hi magrawal, am I right: You want to have an editable 2-page-view?
Comment 8 magrawal 2003-11-12 18:37:33 UTC
Yes, I think it would be useful if one of the options in View -> Zoom were 2 pages. In general, I also think that displaying pages horizontally instead of vertically when the zoom view is small would be a useful improvement. Would you like me to file a separate issue for this second suggestion?
