Is there any way to get a split screen?

Hi Forum, I have an Onyx Max2 Pro. Liking it a lot so far, except for one thing: How to view two different pdf files on the same (huge :-)) screen? I'm looking for some way to split the screen in two panels, side by side or one on top of the other, and read/annotate a different pdf file in each panel. Can this be done, maybe with a third party application? Thanks!

Word of the week: Cow

Last week’s headlines were full of bovine references. I’m not talking about the usual bull: This was all about a fake cow with hundreds of thousands of (presumably) real Twitter followers—a cowfluencer, you might say—that’s being sued by a sitting U.S. congressman. The cow in question (1,200 followers on March 18, 634,000 followers on March 24):   The congressman (404,000 followers):   Yes, Devin Nunes of California’s Central Valley, the ranking Republican on the House Intellige...

Colorado Hands California the Vote Count of Coloradans ~ VIDEO

Opinion Colorado/United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- Last year, we discussed the threat that the National Popular Vote Compact poses to the Second Amendment.

This means that a major threat to the Second Amendment is not that far off. Delaware, with three electoral votes, is reportedly considering joining this compact as well. B...

Becky Chambers' 'A Closed and Common Orbit' brought me to tears

Chamber's second novel, A Closed and Common Orbit, in her Wayfarer series is so wonderful I cried several times. A Closed and Common Orbit picks up immediately after Chambers' first story, Long Way to a Small and Angry Planet concludes but is barely an extension of that story, beyond further expanding on Chambers' wonderful universe. This novel follows a newly created, but ultimately undesired, shipboard AI that is forced to leave its ship and take up a fugitive residence in a human appearing ...

Hello. I am fairly new to Sigil and a complete novice at coding but am teaching myself CSS by trying different things in Sigil in my ebook, "CSS experiment" :) I was working in Sigil with my Stylesheet and in Code View and was wondering if there is a font that would be better/more user friendly to use?

Yes, Virginia, bluebells also grow in Indiana

National Park Service photo Geographically speaking, my always stunning crop of Virginia Bluebells got to Indiana from a plant nursery in West Virginia. But as is often the case in the plant world, geography, history and personal preference get a little tangled in the journey. Yes, the Virginia Bluebells name came from their 17th century discovery in the Colony of Virginia, but they are actually native from New York to Alabama and west to Kansas and Minnesota – and showing up in 18 species al...

Davelle: 13 Ideas to Steal from New York’s Tiniest Jewelbox Restaurant

A magic thing about New York is the way that, every now and then, you stumble upon a little jewel box—a room, a restaurant—on a side street, behind an innocuous storefront, where you least expect it. When Julie and I both spotted a photo of Davelle, a new restaurant on the Lower East Side, a while back, it seemed just that sort of small gem: not much from the outside—easy, even, to walk by, if its grate were pulled across the front its narrow shopfront—but inside, a bright and thoughtful little ...

Resort Vibes at Home

I’ve just returned from a week on the Big Island of Hawaii and it was a great adventure, I’ll share pictures soon! I love to visit the resorts and walk around the lobbies then enjoy a cocktail at the bar and stare out at the ocean views. I’m always inspired by the resort decor, the way they’ve decorated in island style textures and motifs, and the way the designers blur the lines between indoors and out. In every hotel I visited last week I noticed so many stylish woven chairs, I’m featuring all...

Has China’s one child policy increased crime?

Crime rates in China have increased more than six-fold over the past three decades. Likely causes include extraordinary economic growth and rising inequality, mass rural-urban migration, and the erosion of traditional values. China’s one child policy may, however, have also played a role. At the same time as crime has increased, the one child policy, coupled with a strong preference of Chinese parents for sons over daughters, has resulted in there being approximately 120 boys for every 100 girls...
