Method and System of document display /



In current document software (docs, web pages etc.), in some scenarios, it's not convenient for user to read /edit document:

Scenario 1. I am reading a document, there is a figure(FIG. 1) which is at page 2, see below screenshot. In this figure, there are many blocks(101, 102, 103, 104, 105 etc.), and the workflow between blocks are described .

When I am reading the description of the figure , I want the figure to be displayed in current page so that I can compare the figure and the description . Current document software doesn 't provide this kind of capability .
