Can you have 2 Krita windows open on 2 monitors at the same time showing the same file?

Basically i have a windows tablet device that is a monitor in a drawing position and an ultrawide screen monitor in a heads up position just behind it. I want to be able to see some tools on one display those relevant to mouse and keyboard, and some tools relevant to stylus usage on the tablet whilst editing a single file.

I've achieved a similar setup in blender previously, just wondering if anyone knows any way to make this happen in Krita? thanks

Yes you can have two windows of the same file in Krita.
The steps to achieve what you want is:

  1. Go to Window → New Window. This will open a second window of Krita's interface.
  2. Move the newly opened window to your other monitor, then in the new window go to
    Window → New View and choose the file that you want in the list.
