Can Intellij break out a tab into its own window?

I'm trying to figure out if intellij can do this.  I know netbeans and eclipse can, but it's difficult to find if intellij can.  I want to take a source file I'm looking at and turn it into its own window.  That way I can work on it in my other monitor.

Not yet, but it is planned for the next version.

Meanwhile you can split your editor and put separate files in each editor. Not quite as good as being able to pull off a full size editor to its own screen but not a bad substitute either.

Window->Split Vertically
Window->Split Horizontally
