Dual Monitor Setup and Photoshop CS - Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator

I have a G4 OSX, PS CS etc.. I'm about to take the plunge into the dual monitor setup and was curious if I can run the browser as well as the tools on one monitor while keeping the work on another. With the dual setup can you still use TAB to bring the tools in and out over the browser?.. It seems like it would be great to be able to run the browser on a separate monitor from time to time. Thanks George...

    Well, I just tried it, and it works for me in Panther 10.3.3 and Photoshop 7.0.1.

    I like to keep the browser on the main monitor, same as the image I'm working on; but I just tried what you suggest and confirmed it's possible. What the tab key does is hide the palettes alltogether.

    My Photoshop 8 hasn't arrived, but I assume that hasn't changed.

    Yes, that would slow you down considerably.

    I wouldn't keep it going all the time, but sometimes it would be nice when building montages etc. to scan other images in the browser on a second monitor while keeping the project full screen on the main monitor. Unlike most of you folks, I'm a casual user of Photoshop and can afford to waste a little RAM from time to time. Thanks for the info Ramon ! As always I appreciate your time.

    George,

    The slow down would really be remarkable if you keep the browser open when you have images open and you're working on them. I'm talking about your having to stare at the monitor for several seconds while you go from one tool to another, for instance. Only you can decide whether that's worth it to you.

    There's no harm in trying, of course; but my feeling is you're going to give up on that idea real soon.

    Bruce,

    How about in Photoshop 7.0.1? (I'm expecting Photoshop 8 to arrive tomorrow.) I don't even see a File Browser preference in Photoshop7.
