    I thought I remember reading somewhere that it's possible to have multiple views of the same document open at once, so that, for example, you can zoom in and work on a detail area and see how it's affecting the image "live" in another view.

    If I'm not making this up, how do I do it?

    Sometimes I use this technique without zooming. For example, with two views of the same image at the same zoom factor, I can edit text in one window while seeing the result in the other window, but without the insertion bar, underlining, or text-selection highlighting. That let's me see how it is coming out without changing tools back and forth to see my text.

    Hmmm, this is a really good idea. Thanks! :) I will have to remember to try that soon.

    Thanks for the reminder

    I used to use that, but have recently been working with my PB and external monitor. I'll have to try it a again on my iMac G5... I wish I had some real state... I was saving for Dell 24" + G5 upgrade... but I got a Nikon D70 instead!
