comment Is it possible to split the view in InDesign?
Right—as I intended to indicate in my edit, I know I can do that, but when I do that, switching from another app back to InDesign doesn't properly put the focus back into a text frame: spaces and possibly other special keystrokes aren't put into the frame, while letters and most other keystrokes are. This leads to a substantial slow-down in my workflow.

comment Is it possible to split the view in InDesign?
Not a bad idea, but it wouldn't let me edit both parts of the document. As I'd mentioned in a comment, I've got questions in one part and am writing solutions in the other part. With some frequency, writing the solutions causes me to catch errors in the questions, so it's useful to be able to edit there, too.

comment I need advice on how to position key elements in a layout
What about moving the "Details" column under the "Add This" (seems about the same width), the "Q&A" column under the boxshot (again, seems about the same width), and expanding the screenshots and video a bit to fill the middle space (under the synopsis)? (Perhaps realign the overview/reviews/get answers items to all fall within the synopsis/screenshots/video column, then.)

Unfortunately, consistency isn't what I'm working on (I've got that nailed with styles, as you suggest). I have questions on the first page of each document and solutions several pages later and when I'm writing the solutions, it's kind of helpful to be able to look at the questions (and I write it all straight into InDesign).

@Jack: I am working on files that are in an InDesign Book. The two parts I want to look at are in the same file, though.
