Workspace separtation

Hi, I’m still new to Blender. Now I have the new 2.5. I figured out how to separate my workspace but I can make them work independent of each other. The cube moves to the same point on each side. Trying to do the modeling tutorial using the 2.5. Did I make sense?

I don’t quite understand, do you mean that both sides of the mesh are mirroring each other, I.e. both sides are moving when you move one side? If so make sure you haven’t applied a mirror modifier, and that you haven’t turned on X-mirroring, press T to bring up the side toolbar and make sure it’s unchecked.

Also, I’m pretty sure this shouldn’t be in this part of the forum.
