Is it possible to open a new window for a Research Log so that you can see data in the tree without closing the Research Log?

No, as with many programs, RM uses modal windows. Requests for non-modal windows have been posted to the Wish List and are on the enhancement request list. Maybe they'll be available in future versions.

You can open a copy of the database using RootsMagic To-Go on the same computer. Have it open along with the desktop version. Then you can compare with two windows open. You just can't drag n drop between the versions. Just make sure you don't open the same database twice, you need to use a copy of it.
