i finally got sick of tiling my windows and running 3"x3" windows and zooming all the time, so i convinced my IT guy to set up a dual monitor station for me. now that i did that i am seeing some minor drawbacks (although by and large it is better), is there anyway to split the toolbar vertically and display the basics and drafting toolbars side by side? i havent seen any settings for this modification. i have put my project browser on the right side of my right monitor, so when i tile images, the natural break between the monitors is also the break between the internal windows. does anyone have any other tips for a dual monitor setup? Thanks

I wasnt aware you coulf get Revit across two monitors. I run a dual setup at work, and when i try to expand it, it snaps back to the primary monitor. I use it for running two instances, or for having other programs opened (like Max or PS)...

Gdoorn, Currently Revit itself does NOT support dual monitor configurations (like Photoshop, etc.). However, at my home, I run a dual 19" LCD system with a SPAN option. This is an option from my video card (PNY nVidia FX5600+/256 mb vPU) and my vary per video card. In effect, this treats the monitor as one large wide screen. The Start menu and application bar is at the bottom of the first monitor only. Within Revit, I am able to 'stretch' the working windows to span across both monitors. If the view windows aren't docked, I'm able to have multiple showing with no problem. As for the Toolbar, I am NOT able to change these or put them side by side. Again, there is no support, so you're not going to see a checkbox for this (in this release). I think my only tip is try and see what you like. It's all about how you feel when you work. Sometimes I like to work with Revit on one monitor and Firefox or Outlook on the other and multi-task. It's up to you! Kyle K-Pax

thanks yeah, i too just 'stretched' the window across both monitors...but it allows me to work pretty well. a lot nicer than one monitor. plus, with the added screen size, i was able to push the monitors back to the back corner of my "L" shaped desk, and i can get a 30" sheet between me and the monitors, just to stream line things a bit. so far it is working well. Thanks for your comments.
