Create new frame/window similar to emacs C-x 5 2 ?

Hello everyone!
I am trying to find an editor that supports editing in multiple separate windows for use with, for example, multiple monitors (similar to the emacs command "create new frame", C-x 5 2).
Is this something that is possible with 4coder or that is reasonable to implement in future versions?

It's not possible at the moment to open a second window.

You can open two instance of 4coder, and with the custom layer you might be able to synchronize them to some extends (open the same files in the two instances, reload them when you switch window...).

A second window seems to be an issue that several editors have problems with. Vscode have git issues that have been open for a while and Neovim have been working on related issues as well. So this seems to be a feature that at least some users of different editors asks for. Anyway, thank you for your reply.
