Viewing Multiple Spreadsheets

You can view multiple spreadsheets at the same time to make reviewing data across spreadsheets easier.

Viewing Multiple Spreadsheets

You can open spreadsheets in the same browser tab or different browser tabs or windows. This lets you easily view more than one spreadsheet as a split screen or in separate windows.

Creating a Split-Screen View

To view two spreadsheets in split-screen:

1
Open both spreadsheets in the same browser tab.
2
Drag the tab for the second spreadsheet to the right and drop the document in the blue rectangle that appears.

Moving to Split Screen

You can tell which spreadsheet is active by its tab color — the gray tab is inactive. The Outline panel also shows the sheets for the spreadsheet you are editing.

Returning to Single Document View

To return to viewing one spreadsheet at a time, drag and drop the second spreadsheet tab next to the primary tab.

Moving to Single Document View

Viewing in Separate Windows

To view spreadsheets in separate windows, right-click the tab of an open spreadsheet and select Open in a new browser tab.

Viewing in Separate Windows

Collapsing Side Panels

If you need more space in the main editor to view multiple spreadsheets, collapse each of the side panels. Click the double arrows to collapse a panel.

Collapsed panels appear as a vertical list of icons. Clicking on any of the icons or the double arrows reopens the panels.
