How can I view two Numbers spreadsheets side by side? When I open the second spreadsheet, the first spreadsheet window is hidden. I can switch the window in the Windows menu to go back and forth, but I cannot open both windows side by side. I want to see both at the same time to compare them in detail.

There is a neat little app called Magnet (free in the Apple App store) which lets you place a page in a selected part of the screen, e.g. left, right, top, bottom etc.

I am using macOS 10.15.6 (Catalina) with Numbers 10.1 (6913). I tried 'Command + N' but could not get another instance of Numbers to open. I tried two keys (command + N) and three keys (command + shift + N) but neither worked. The first gave me a window "Choose a Template" and the second gave me a Sheet 2 with a blank table.
I did find a solution:
  • Open both spreadsheets, which creates one window with two tabs.
  • Select one of the tabs.
  • In the Window menu, select "Move Tab to New Window."
This creates a second window with the selected spreadsheet, leaving the other spreadsheet in the first window.
