Easy to do, great feature. Suggestion.

I suggest you to take a look at the "Window > New Window" menu. It opens 
a new window for the current document, you can switch to different 
sheets in each of the window. You can resize each of the window and look 
at the contents side by side. It would be much easier if you have 
multiple screen monitors attached to your computer.

Hi. My name is Matt. I use Calc a lot. I have a great idea. First, I 
usually modify my spreadsheets to improve them. They are complex. But I 
have a few versions of one type, e.g. "Schematic" which is a schematic 
of my solar generator installations which has tables that calculate 
power yields and wot not. One version is for large jobs, one for small 
jobs, one for single phase, one for 3 phase. It just saves me time to 
pull up the version most applicable to customise for a particular solar 
system. So when I modify one I modify the other versions too. Now, while 
I was copying blocks of cells and pasting them into other versions I 
also had to correct cross referenced cells to some of the formulas in 
other pages of the spreadsheet. So there I was clicking a cell, then the 
= and then I had to click the other sheet and click on the required 
cell. This back and forth from one sheet to another was awkward whereas 
copying from a separate spreadsheet altogether was easy as they were 
both on screen at the same time. So if more than one sheet of the same 
spreadsheet could be viewed side by side at the same time, it will make 
cross referencing cells between sheets a whole lot faster. And if 
desired, if more than one sheet is open at a time then perhaps the copy 
and paste will acknowledge the cells in the other sheet(s) and not try 
to ref the cells in the origin spreadsheet.
