I'm new to this list but i love texworks since it's included in Miktex 
2.8 :-) Very great peace of software!

I've got a short question:
is there a way to open texworks (editor and pdf-viewer) two times with 
different documents?

The idea is to put the 2 instances of texworks on different monitors or 
virtual desktops (e.g. using dexpot) to be able to copy several parts of 
one document to another new one in a very comfortable way...

Instance no.1:
find the desired part in the pdf
jump to the code (synced)
copy it

switch to instance no.2
paste the code
compile it
check the appearance in the pdf

switch back to instance no.1
find the next wanted part in the pdf

Best regards from Hannover, Germany
