Split Screen

It'd be nice to split-screen part studios and assemblies without a new Chome window.

    This would be especially helpful when writing featurescript.

    I've always thought chrome split screen was an awesome way to work, and can't really imagine a split with the Onshape UI. However, this may be a Mac feature, not chrome where it splits the screen vertically up the center when adding a new window but I am sure windows can do this too. I also really like in chrome how you can duplicate and tear tabs off to place them on other screens, I think it's great how the browsers tech is taken advantage of.

    I was thinking to have more of a horizontal split to help in writing feature script. In this way a user can modify what they see on either top/bottom of the split.
    I would use this to show preconditions and predicates on top of the split with the implementations below. Having the ability to see two areas of the same code would help prevent the need to scroll up and down to compare the two.

    Why split-screen part studios and assemblies without a new Chome window?
    You can open a few windows and split the screen
    @Chad_Fortune you can do the same with a FeatureStudio tab

    Actually if you can afford it (a monitor are very cheap) I recomended a second or even a third monitor to work ;-)
