The ONE feature I miss in OO and makes me stick to MS Word : the ability to display (and edit) two pages of the document side by side. Bonus : Ideally, it would make the most of the screen (even and particularly on 16/9 screens, which are perfect to display 2 pages side by side).On small laptops (12,1"), every centimeter counts. The ideal would be a kind of "two pages, text width" option, to avoid wasting precious centimeters of white margins on each side. (but a plain 2-pages display would already allow me to say goodbye to Word). P.S: I got the advice to work on landscape A3 page with 2 columns for editing but after giving it a try, it's not a solution (unable to use page break in styles,...)

Indeed, the only way to view pages side - by side is in the print preview (read only). In Word the two or more pages are automatically shown if you zoom small enough. Of course we can do better with smaller side by side margins and if the pages are really small, grayed out, but big actual page numbers (based upon the page styles and sections) marking the pages.
