How can I open multiple windows?

Post by beanaroo » Tue Oct 23, 2018 8:03 pm

Hi guys,

I would like to edit multiple documents side-by-side. I'm unable to find a way to pull a tab off into a new window or open a new window from the launcher. I found a workaround by opening a window via the application menu and then running onlyoffice-desktopeditors via a terminal window, but this is not ideal and I can't open any more. ( I get the output: "DesktopEditors had been run already" ).

At the office I have multiple monitors and at home I have an ultra-wide monitor, so this ability is rather essential for me.

Is there maybe an argument that I can add to the .desktop file (like --new-window or the like)?

Thank you!

Unfortunately, there is no possibility to open several copies of ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors at the same time. If you would like to edit several documents you can open them in different tabs of Desktop Editors.
