Open several documents in the same workspace

Bug Description

Be able to open several documents :
- at least in the same window (tabs).
- better, in the same workspace.
- better better, both options.

For shared workspace, all files would be displayed next to each other, like several sheets of paper on your (real) desktop. Easy drag'n'drop of objects between documents. For large projects with a lot of items, it would be very handy to organize the work.

(see 'artboard' feature in Illustrator)

Issues :
- Saving: save all documents ? What if I don't want to keep a modification in only one documents opened ?
- Objects between frames: they are not yet used but I want to keep them, in what document/s save them ?
- Memorize a workspace to re-open it later with all documents linked.

Not duplicate, but related indeed.

2017-07-12 VictorWestmann - Having multiple artboards (with different sizes and colors) would be a HUG achieement for Inkscape. They could be used as pages when exporting a file to PDF so users would be able to use them as pages(?). Anyway... this would be awesome and will allow even more flexibility inside the application. +1 for this.
