For example, I link a draft document to a research document.
When I open one of these documents so that the second one opens in another editor.
This would be a very useful feature when working with large documents.
This can be done using “Copy Document Link”. But, this is not very convenient.
Probably the closest existing feature would be the Document Bookmarks. You open document A and get a list of bookmarks, which you can then open in a separate pane.
(Disclaimer: I’m describing the Mac version. I’m not sure exactly how it’s implemented in the Windows version.)
It is the same under Scrivener for Windows, Katherine.
