Description macias 2008-07-24 16:56:13 UTC
Mild relation to:

Ok, try this:
open a file
launch another writer
open the same file

It will look like the file was opened the second time but it was not -- the 
writer simply switched to the first instance.

The wish -- don't do this. Open the second (and later) time the file in 
read-only mode.

Reason: the same as for split-views. In one window I edit file, in second (and 
third, and so on) I keep track of references (source formulas, previous 
paragraphs). It is useful because with two monitors, you can put one window at 
one monitor, and the second window (editor) at the second.
