I would like to be able to open a new Paper window in order to edit two documents side by side, in two separate windows.


Notion is able to do that in their electron app:

In contrast, Dropbox Paper forces everything to happen in a single window:

Switching between documents in the sidebar doesn't solve my need.

@chrismessina Thanks for sharing. Just to be sure I follow our request. I assume you have had access to the Dropbox Paper Mac native app. Is this right? Because I have not found (maybe I'm confused on thi), any currently available version of the Dropbox Paper foor the Mac. All my notes open in the browser. Am I missing something? Thanks. Martin.

Correct. I'm using the beta Dropbox Paper native Mac app, which forbids opening more than one window at a time.
