    Movable palette windows with dual monitor

    Hi,
    I'm pretty sur this has been mentioned but searching the forum is very daunting! I get seven pages. I might have even been one of the person suggesting this...

    I'm using two monitors and would like to have my palettes on one screen and the canvas on my main screen.
    That would be great.

    Hi Alain

    I've asked for this before.
    I'm also using dual monitors and wish that I can drag my "toolbars" out of the main window , and onto my second monitor, similar to what I do in Photoshop. Also then to be able to "save the workspace".

    I know that the whole artrage window can be dragged across the 2 monitors, but it isn't the same thing, cause then ones canvas lands up cut between the 2 monitors.

    Thanks

    I can't drag the window over two monitors.
    Using Mac.

    I'm working quite a lot with storyboarding.
    Having dual monitor support is so important I hope it get's into the new version.

    If by this you mean saving all your stencils rulers, tool settings etc etc yes I'm all for that,
    I am doing a lot of work at the moment where I will have a bunch of rulers set to different angles for drawing angular style stuff and it is so frustrating when I cannot just go back to a picture to tinker without having to redo all the rulers

    another idea I would like to see implemented is rulers that you could tie to a perspective point, would make framing up so much quicker,,,(then again where does an art program end and a technical drawing program begin)

    (I know, I should go and get autocad ;])

    Then again its great that I can have several rulers on the go at a time,
    First you learn patterns, then more patterns, finally you dance

    You already can do that. There's a perspective tutorial using rulers pinned to the vanishing points in the tips forum:

    D'oh ..........I really have to finish those tutorials before opening my big mouth,

    Thanks for pointing this out Andy, I had not really thought what the pins represented.

    Nah - it just makes it look like we implement the features before you know you need them
    It upholds our reputation as superheroes.

    And now I'm going to do something very evil...
    I'm going to leak information about ArtRage 3.
    ArtRage 3 will definitely have moveable tool palettes that you can move out of your workspace and onto a second monitor if you want.

    There. I've said it. I've leaked information about ArtRage 3.

    This means I have to fix the bugs in the panel system now, doesn't it?

    Nah - no-one will notice. They'll be too busy drooling over the tool presets.
