I often need to compare two documents side by side, e.g. when I have to compare two documents - one in English, one in German - if there are any new sentences or paragraphs in one of the documents which are not translated in the other document. I don't mean a side-by-side diff view like Issue 81526. I suggest a side-by-side view of 2 documents with synchronous scrolling so that you can view the documents without manually scrolling in each document separately. In MSO 2003 you can find this smart feature in the Window menu and it is called "Ansicht Nebeneinander".

Please, can someone change the status to NEW? This issue has been accepted and has a target milestone "later".

As an amateur translator, this is also one feature I need a lot. Interestingly, it seems that Writer is the only text processor in my Mac that doesn't do it "out of the box".
