Wishlist IV9: Open two windows for drawing and view multiple sheets

I wish:

It was possible to open two windows for a drawing (Window => New Window) then be able to view different sheets in each window. Now, with IV9, if you open two windows then change drawing sheets in one window, the sheet changes for the other window too :-( The reason I came across this was I was trying to cut and paste text from one sheet to another by drag-and-drop, but since you can't look at two sheets at the same time, it doesn't seem possible.

I doubt you'll see any new features -- I'd call this a feature, not a bug fix -- in non-current versions of Autodesk software.

View multiple drawing sheets in separate windows.

I just tried to do this and could not.  Searching in WikiHelp and the forums I couldn't find any more posts about this.  Is there a way to have 2 different drawing sheets display in separate inventor windows?
