Multi monitor support?

Postby DesertBighorn » December 27th, 2011, 11:46 pm

Why doesn't PWP support multiple monitors? It would be great to move the current tool window to another monitor to have one screen for just the image being edited. Canon's DPP allows the tool palette to be moved to another monitor where PWP doesn't.

Thanks,
Doug

PWP can be used with two monitors. To extend the PWP window across two monitors, unmaximize the PWP window. Then drag the edges across the second monitor. You can now move any of the palettes to either of the monitors.

Kiril, thanks for the reply. I see that as a work around. The palette still stays within the main PWP window and is not decoupled. I just tried a few other programs and they let me move the popup windows outside their main programming window. Could this just be some compiler setting for the daughter windows?

This is not a workaround -- it is part of the design. Picture Window is designed for maximized use, so not being able to move a palette outside the main window is not generally an issue. However this design allows you to freely overlap other windows, such as image windows, on top of the palettes when you want to. Picture Window does make limited use of the kind of palettes that always hover over the program's main window (like the Album property window). Such palettes are far less flexible in the way they share the screen real estate and so we use them only in special circumstances.

Kiril,

I understand about opening the window across 2 screens and I have no problem with that. Is there any possibility of getting the program to "remember" to open that way each time?

Thank you
Kevin Kopchynski
