Will Revid support 2 monitors. Sure the principle screen can be dragged across 2 screens and the various views located within that space, but can you have 2 principle screens and expand views etc to fill only one monitor.

ummmmm not sure if windows can do it the software will support what ever the OS will allow. i dont beleave that revit will allow you to eject windows from the primary. i guess you could run mulipul instances of revit.... what you might want to do is strech the revit window to fill both monitors and then run the windows with in the revit app minmized so that you can see manny diffrent windows all at the same time,,,,,

I am running a two monitor setup as well. 1st your cpu tower needs to have 2 monitor ports As far as Revit goes, from what i have been told, Revit does not support a dual monitor setup. if you maximize a session of Revit, it maximizes within 1 screen. if you shrink the window and drag it across the 2nd monitor, you can maximize views within the Revit window that will take up both screens, but the main revit session can not be maximized. the other issue is tiling your views. you basically have to set up your project browser on the right edge of the right monitor. then rezise the project browser and the design bar manually so when you tile your views they stop at the monitor extents. the problem is that you have to do this everytime you open a revit session. it is still more efficient for me to run 2 monitors, but it does take some extra setup work. i hope this helps

Two monitors is too much trouble for just the Revit graphics. Spend the extra money and get some bigger screen real estate.   I'm using a 24" main monitor with a 19" on the side for reference data only. ( ie: Revit HELP can be kept displayed while you continue to work).

Would be nice to upgrade to a 30" view soon...!! 

 HTH,

Rob
