Did SolidWorks 2010 add enhancements to support dual monitors?
Software support for dual moniters would include things like:
Ability to target dialoge windows to alternate moniters
Keeping one moniter in use for modelspace, while the other holds things like toolbars, menus, properties dialogs, etc...
Adobe creative software makes extensive use of 'multi-moniter' enviornements. I use dual omniters at work, and 4 at home. I can span SolidWorks across both moniters, but the separation between moniters drives me batty.... I would love to be able to detatch the FMT and move it and all of my toolbars& ancillary windows over to my other moniter so they could be a little bigger, and be out of my way.
I think SWX2010 supports moving the FMT now, but within the confines of the SWX window. There is no direct support for multi moniters that I am aware of.
On a side note, I use UltraMon to increase the functionality of my moniters...
The ability to detach the Command Manager and move to other monitor was introduced in SW09.
What I would really like to do, is to have the ability to open SW on files different windows to expand them on different monitors,similar to adobe Software as you mentioned.
I didn't know that! My company is anachronisticly clinging to SWX'08... we're on subscription... we have 2009 CDs!!!! I can't wait for the upgrade!
I have 2009 on my laptop... so I never really need to move stuff around.
<evil genius voice>Unless I could invent a dual moniter laptop!!!!</evil genius voice>
Check out the Lenovo ThinkPad W700ds.....
The Task Pane, typically on the RH side w/ Resources & Design Library can be moved out of the SW window and onto another monitor. All you do is grab (click) the header bar and drag to the other monitor. Keep the pin pushed in!
Hope that helps a little...
