    yyang, Thanks for your post. We've received similar feature requests from some other users as well. Currently the feature of "edit the same document in two windows at the same time synergistically" isn't supported in the Foxit PDF Editor and Foxit PDF Reader yet. However, we have already recorded this request to our intenal features tracking system with report ID#PHANTOM-4088,so that our product management will evaluate it during planning for the future releases.
    Any further questions or concerns,please contact us again at any time.

    Just registered to support this. Editing the same document in two tab or two windows is a killer feature. Nobody wants to jump back and forth like a clown.

    Your vote has been added to ID#PHANTOM-4121 as well.
    For open a copy, you may go to File->Recent Documents, then right-click on the name of the file and choose "Open a copy". I've included a screenshot as attachment. Please check it and see if it helps. Thank you. Click image for larger version

    Is this a Phantom feature, or just Foxit PDF editor?

    The feature is still under consideration, let me add your vote to our team, and remind them to add the new feature asap. ID#PHANTOM-4121.
    Could you please add my vote lyndi_wu , to introducing a 'new tab' feature? ?
    1. I cannot seem to right click on recent documents.
    2. To open a new document, I need to go to file in folder.
    3. Adobe Acrobat currently offers the split tab, and it's much simpler.

    Thank You, Lisa.
    It DOES work as you described = 2 Windows -
    Clk'ing File / Recent Docs Gives you 2 Tabs of the Same document in One Window (one named and the 2nd Untitled ), and Rt Clk / Open on the Same PDF gives me 2 Windows of the Same doc.
    Different people here had different goals and it's hard to tell who is happy now.
    Many Thanks for the follow-up

    Thanks everyone in this post chain. Well if you "Open a copy", you wont be able to save changes on both tabs. And a advise saying that document could not be saved. "The file may be read-only, or opened by another user..."

    So, the thing is to open the same file on two tabs, and the hability to save changes in the same file, but workin on 2 tabs.

    Thank you so much to everyone. This is an excelent program, lets support it!!!
