Right now I am reading Ezk 40 and wanted to check out what the ESV Study Bible had.  It turns out there is a nice little map of the temple which has number and letter keynotes which are listed on a legend above.  I would like to see the legend and the map on the same screen at the same time, in 2 columns, but as soon as I switch my reading mode to columns, the legend is on one "page" while the maps is on the next...

This seems like a random happenstance of page-splitting.  Is there a way to slide these columns up or down when you're in a side-to-side reading mode (kind of like when using two fingers, on the app, to slide up or down)?

Thank you

Quick answer: No.  In Columns, you loose your scroll bar. You're better off opening two instances ... then adjust to line up.

You can temporarily get out of "paged" view, scroll to the point where the top of the legend is precisely at the top of your window, then go back into paged view. By doing this (with a large enough tab for my ESV) I was able to fit it all in one page of paged 2-column view. Granted, the column break wasn't in an ideal place, but I could have tweaked the window size until I achieved that if I'd had the patience:

EDIT: Then again, selecting all of that and copying/pasting into Word would give you even more control over the layout.
