I always use the implemented figure browser as a workaround for this. However, having the figure browser open gives the a dark overlay over your text and disables scrolling. If you could just keep scrolling while watching a figure at the same time, this would be awesome.
I love the concept of watching a figure side by side while reading a research article. papers 4 has an option of showing a thumbnail of the figure to the left side which is very small or when clicked, it overlays in front of text blocking the text view. I would like to have the option of watching a figure on the left side while simultaneously reading the research article on the right side of the screen.
Also, the treatment given to the figure, should also be given to the table. I.e Ability to observe a table on the left side while reading an article on the right side of the screen.
