This functionality was changed in 2016 and we have added detachable tabs in 2016. In  doing so they changed the old behavior in the Windows view now it will only allow the same map split in a horizontal or vertical view.

If you type in "detach tab" or "mindmanager views" under help it will bring up detailed information on all the different types of views. Below are the instructions on how to do this.

View multiple maps at the same time. Sometimes you want to view multiple maps side-by-side, or across multiple display screens. You can do this by detaching the map's 
workbook tab and relocating it To display two or more maps simultaneously 

Click the workbook tab for an open map. 

Drag and drop the tab to the desired location or screen. The map is displayed in the new location. Use the mouse to navigate between multiple maps; ribbon commands, task panes, and footer buttons will apply to the selected map. To cancel multiple map display: 

Click the workbook tab for the "torn off" map. 

Drag the tab back to the MindManager canvas. When the map background is highlighted, drop the map on it.

Aha, sorry I missed that new function. But the command are a little bit misleading: Arrange indicates arranging and the only thing you can do is close windows.

Looks like a very good new functionality!

Sorry to say, but the help function does not give much help. I tried to search for "detach tab" but didn ́t find anything about it.

Split workspace looks great. How can I close a workspace? Do I have to move maps one by one?

I also tried the detach tab function. Wonderful when using a projector. Now when I tested I didn ́t have any second screen/projector attached. But I noticed that the detached tab window flickers every time I use the ribbon. I hope that dissapears when using a second screen/projector.

Tested the detach tab functionality today at a customer workshop. Works great, no flicker when using two screens! :-)
