    Hi Rustem,

    we will work on it, but I don't think Apple Notes open multiple windows, or I'm missing something?

    Double click the notes could open them at a new window. And we can edit them side by side. It's truly a need.

    Not as big a need for me, but I like being able to have multiple open.

    Apple Notes does open the note in a new window without the "browser" stuff when you double click on the name of the note.

    Hi Everybody,

    I'm here to announce the just released version 1.2.2 of Bear comes with support for opening notes in a new window.
    To open a note in an external window double click on it in the note list or select
    Note -> Open in New Window.

    Any chance we can get a keyboard shortcut for this?

    You can associate your own shortcut to the Open in New Window menu item.
