split view of a single file?

I have a file open in the right group of a split view, how do I open it in the left as well?  I want multiple views to look at different locations within the same file, but when I do "open" in the group that doesn't have it, it just switches me over to the other side.

Only a workaround: Right-click on the tab of the file you want to move and choose "Split Vertically" or "Split Horizontally". A new editor window opens (with one tab). You can either directly use this window or simply drag the tab/file to another editor window (the left one in your case).

Suggestion to Jetbrains: Holding the <Ctrl> key while dragging a tab should yield/open a copy in the destination editor.

Hope this helps.
