Here's a shortcut for seeing two different views of the same document. It requires creating a new window for the current document. Something that may not seem all that intuitive at first. So here I am in this particular document on page 13 and I want to create a new view for this particular document. So I go to the Window menu and choose Arrange > New Window. Now that's going to create a secondary window. It's the exact same document. If you look at the tab, it actually gives you some indication that you have a second window now for the same documents.
So this is window 2 and this is window 1, and what this lets you do is have two different zoom percentages for the same section of a document, or even viewing two different pages at the same time. Each one has its own navigation. So if I double-click on page 9, I am viewing page 9 in one window and page 13 on another. So that in itself is useful. If I wanted to see two different views of the same page, that's another use for this handy feature. So on this particular document, I'll go ahead and select that text frame and Command+Plus/Ctrl+Plus to zoom in, so I can see it really up close and tight.
I'll do some further editing here, then I can see it in context with the rest of the page. So a very handy shortcut. Under the Window menu, Arrange > New Window, and by default it should tile those side-by-side. If they're not, you can always use the Arrange Documents widget up here on the Application bar to tile them and change how you are seeing them side-by-side.
