Working with two windows open
August 20, 2019
Hi, anyone knows how can I work simultaneously with two zotero windows? I'm mac user, if it matters. Tks!!!!

That's not currently possible, sorry. There's some chance we'll add support for this in the future.
(It used to be possible when Zotero was a Firefox extension, because you could open multiple Firefox windows, but it's never worked in the standalone Zotero app.)

if your problem is that you are modifying an item, but need to look up another item in order to accomplish that, which means that you then have to go back and find your earlier item again... I have a workaround where I tag the item or items I'm working on with the tag ".NOW" and I have a saved search that finds all items with that tag. So I just switch between my main collection and the saved search, and remove the tag when I'm done with the item. Would that help?

+1, this would be a great help. Detachable panes would be even better. With several groups and many collections, it is getting harder and harder to navigate or organize references.

I am really struggling now so I thought I would return to this suggestion.
In large collections with multiple groups and many people making collections the current navigation becomes insufficient (painful). Moving references or comparing collections is hard and requires multiple expanding/collapsing and scrolling operations.
Multiple windows into the same database would help, especially if one could right-click a collection and choose: open in a new window.
Thanks for considering.
