Another Inspector for use on second monitor

Editor

-

-

Hello!

I'm using 2 monitors.
I can drag panes over to another screen.
That is great.
However, there are situations where I would like to have an Inspector on both screens.
For example, I have the Scene view + Hierarchy + Inspector open on screen #1, and I have the Animator on screen#2.
Now when I want to edit a Transition in the Animator, I have to look at screen #1 because it's not possible to have 2 Inspectors.

It would be great if it was possible to open the Inspector twice.
Also, it should then be possible to have the 2 Inspectors work independently.

This way Inspector #1 could be used for something on screen #1, and Inspector #2 could be used for something on screen #2.

    I am not sure what version you are using, but I am able to have as many inspector as I want on 2018.3. In fact as far as I can recall, it has been supported since 5.x, the first version I used.

    However, it is not possible to select two different objects in both inspector, without having to lock one to a specific object. Not sure how that can be tackled. Probably, a right click on GO/Asset, with a "Send to" and then list of inspector tabs.

    It IS already possible to open a second inspector. To do this, right-click on any tab, go to the Add Tab dropdown and select inspector. Both inspectors will show the same info though, so you will need to lock one of them.

    That would make working with the Editor soooo much easier!
