Freezing the Preview Pane

Suppose you have three columns showing in Citavi. On the left, you have your outline of categories. In the middle you have a list displaying the knowledge items for the currently selected category. On the right you have the preview pane. What I'm doing in that configuration is looking at the knowledge items and moving them between categories to organize a lot of info. What keeps on happening is that before I move a knowledge item to a different category, I want to see what else I've already put in that category. So I select a different category to see what's there. The problem is that I've then lost the preview item that I was working on. What I really want is to have that item to continue to show up while I compare it to what's stored in other categories. It works fine now, but I do loose a lot of time is clicking my way back to the item I'm thinking about moving to another category. I think probably a "back" button and a "forward" button might help. Or possibly being able to open a separate window for a knowledge item. Basically it would be nice if it were easier to keep a knowledge item handy so I can go back to it with one click. Thanks.

P.S. I do see that while I'm viewing one category, I can use Ctrl | Click to select multiple knowledge items for display in the preview pane. This would be a great solution, except I cannot use this feature to display items from multiple categories.

Hi Eugene

You can create a second window with your Citavi project by clicking Window > New window for this project which you can use for looking up things in another category.

That answers the question. I can get all the information on one monitor and visible to compare items in different categories using a second window. Thanks!
