Viewing Multiple SpreadsheetsLast updated on 07/31/19
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:
- Open both spreadsheets in the same browser tab.
- Drag the tab for the second spreadsheet to the right and drop the document in the blue rectangle that appears.
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.
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.
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.
