Is it possible to view two notes at a time? I am used to Evernote's Open Note in New Window feature. I need to be able to compare two notes at a time.

    Thats Super Important for many Users, I guess, maybe double blick on note opens a editor window without navigation

    I need this too, but this workaround is sometimes sufficient: if you only need to see one of the notes, and not modify it, export it and open it with another app.

    Must say that this has been a long time in the works and it seems like a simple fix. Could you please update on this. I must also mention that Michael, above, has a very large following and many people take his lead on these matters.

    Hi everybody,

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