When reading a module, there are often encounter/dungeons with maps with the rooms/locations described below. However when you scroll down, you can no longer reference the map. You have to scroll up/down to read the descriptions and reference the map (similar to how you have to flip back and forth with the pages in a physical book).
However, with a digital version, it seems like it would be possible to create a Picture-in-Picture effect where a small easy-to-reference version of the map could be stickied while reading the rest of the encounter/dungeon so you can have both handy. Perhaps this could also include the General Features info for the dungeon/encounter as well. This would allow DMs to reference the big picture info about the dungeon while also focusing on a specific room/location.
Currently my workaround it to open the same page in another browser window, scroll to the map and general features section and then use a different window to read room/location descriptions. But this is a hassle since I have so many tabs/windows open already to run my game. DnD Beyond should consider leveraging its strength as a digital product and find ways to support DMs needing access to multiple parts of a dungeon/encounter at once — instead of presenting it in a linear format as if it were a book.
