video of bug

I have a document open, then create a new window of that document. What is quite annoying is this:

- if you change the zoom in one doc, it affects the other as well, same if you change the view type at bottom of screen;
- if you try to avoid that and change the new window to print layout, the position/part of the doc that is shown changes as one changes windows or scrolls.

See the video for a demo. Why can't one window just be independent of the other one so that I can read/edit in one window but can still check quickly what's going on somewhere else in the document.

(Using Mint KDE 11)
