        The last two major updates for Windows 10 have disabled the 'View Side by Side' symbol.
        Why?

        I doubt it MS is working on it. According to reliable bloggers, iOS 13 will feature a native approach to open 2 instances of the same app, so MS is probably waiting for that.

        "Gurman claims that iOS 13 is code-named Yukon—Apple typically code-names its iOS releases around ski resort towns, so this checks out—and that it will feature (among other things) a bunch of welcome iPad features:
        -A new Files app
        -Tabs within apps (similar to macOS)
        -The ability to run two instances of the same app side-by-side
        -Apple Pencil improvements
        -File system improvements (like the ability for docs to live outside apps)"

        I use it a lot on my pc. Always comparing old and new quotes done in excel. Would be cool to do it on iPad Pro.

        It would be good to have possibility to open 2 excel files in a split view on iOS11, similar way as you can open new safari page in a split view.

        We should have the option to compare two spreadsheets or two workbooks side by side.

        Add an option to open a new instance of the application. This would make it very useful to compare two spreadsheets side by side.

        Please can we have the facility to view two open spread sheets on a split screen for excel
        Thanks

        Having the ability to have TWO Excel worksheets open would help for comparing data. That goes the same for all Office Apps. Currently the two apps must be two different apps. BIG weakness compared to an actual laptop
