multiple screens in Aris Architect

Often one has to use several models or compare models side by side. What is possible with most of the office products, seems not possible in Aris. Or did I miss something? (Version of Aris in use: 9.8.4)
If it is not available, is it planned to have it in a near future?
Thanks and regards

Dear Bertin,

Did you try opening another Architect and putting the both windows side by side?

Windows 7 or newer offers the key combination Windows+Right (arrow) and Windows+Left to have 2 programs filling the while screen side by side.

Dear Rune

Thanks for your answer and please excuse the delay of my answer. I acknowledge these possibilities, but I think running the same program in two instances is not very resource efficient. My idea was that Aris Architect could split screens as other GUI applications do. Maybe you can submit this question to development. In the mean time we will work as you suggested.

Hello Bertin,

do you know how to compare two models in ARIS Architect? That already existed in ARIS 7.2 I'm sure. You do a multi-select on two models in Explorer (or a search result list of Ctrl+F dialog) and in the context menu you have the option to compare models ("Modelle vergleichen"). This will give you a side-by-side view of the models with highlighting of the differences and details of the selected difference at the bottom.

This feature is only available in ARIS Architect client.

Cheers, M. Zschuckelt
