In a very long document, I sometime need to see two different pages at the same time (let's say page 13 and page 74). How can I do that in Writer?

If it were a spreadsheet, you could have used the slider at the top right corner to split the window, but that is not available in (my version - Portable, on Win 7 of Writer. It is available in Calc. It's also available in MS Word.

However, you can use the menu Window > New Window to create a second view of the document. Then arrange the two windows as needed. They are independent views of the same document and you can set the page for each.

Maybe could you add to your answer that by opening a new view of the same document, you can edit the document in each view.

I am not certain that you can. However, what I do with the same problem is to use the NAVIGATOR. PF5 Turns it on and off. You can enter a page number to go directly to a page. If you use Styles such as Headings etc. You can use the Navigator to go directly to a section without needing the actual page number.

Not what you asked for, but I hope it is a help..Peter

Probably not the answer you are looking for, but what you could do is make a copy of the original file and then open both the original file as well as the copy. By switching between the files you can now easliy compare different pages. Hope it helps.
