    Default Dual Monitor Problem

    I recently upgraded my system to a dual monitor setup. With Adobe products,
    palettes can be dragged outside of the main program window. In director, I
    can't do this, and since the second monitor is a lower resolution than the
    main monitor, the docked palettes get cut off either on the top or bottom,
    depending on how I've oriented the monitor.

    Does anyone know of a solution? Is there a way to put palettes outside the
    main program window, or do I have to extend the program window to the second
    monitor and make due with having some stuff cut off?

    Win XP Pro, Radeon 7000 card, Director MX 2004.

    Thanks.

    Hi

    I also got two monitors. The way i use it is as follow: just drag your main
    window/ stage window all over your two monitors. Now you can put your palletes
    on your second monitor.

    Hope this helps

    I also use two monitors in WinXP with MX 2004. The latter solution is
    correct (dragging program window across both screens). I actually prefer
    this system as the Adobe program windows tend to get misaligned if one uses
    multiple desktops (as I do). Director windows remain fixed in place.

    I see what you're saying. I prefer the Adobe solution as my monitors have
    different resolutions.
    The ability to save panel sets eases the pain quite a bit.
    thanks.
