two documents side by side?

I just got a widescreen monitor and have been looking
forward to having two Word documents open side by side so
that I could refer to one while I write the other.

But I'm not having much success. When I open the two
documents and resize them so that they fit next to each
other, the text isn't reformatted and I have to use the
horizontal scrollbar on each document to read to the end of
each line - obviously, this is not what I'd hoped for :)

I see that I can open the documents horizontally, one on top
and the other on bottom. Is this the only way to do what I
want or is there a trick for opening them side by side
without extensive use of the horizontal scrollbar?

Thanks.

Hi Louise,

Try changing the ZOOM to adjust the text size (visually).

I just tried that and I have to go down to 50% to be able to
not have to scroll horizontally. Needless to say, I can't
read it at 50%.

This is a 21" LCD.

It seems to me that the "solution" would be that Word would
automatically reformat the text for the reduced size of the
window - is that my dream - or is that possible to achieve?

Thanks again.

Word does do that in Reading Layout view (Onscreen Reading view in Word
2007), but it is not WYSIWYG.
