How can we improve Power BI?

Power BI Desktop - Tear Away Development Windows

I suspect that many of us today have multiple monitors and/or large monitors. To make better use of the screen area during Power BI Development....

The development panes such as Fields, Visualisations, Selection, Sync Slicers, Field Properties should be able to be "torn away" and freely move to another screen... and/or allowed to float over the work area. This should also include a separate window pane for DAX code.

    Yes please. After working a lot with power pivot, which is open in a separate window allowing me to have excel open at the same time, it feels really frustrating to be stuck in one window.

    1. In Power Pivot I can keep working with the reports while data is being updated to power pivot. In Power BI, everything is put on hold while waiting for data to be updated.
    2. In Power Pivot, since I have the report (Excel) window open parallell to the data window, it's easier for me to see the needs from the report and the effect in the report from the changes I do in the model.

    Would love for this to be implemented.
