Title: A blinding glimpse of the bleeding obvious! - two monitors tip
Post by: SFA on August 22, 2016, 04:05:44 AM
I have been using two monitors for a while now and find it really helpful.

What I have just realised, however, is that you can have your DesignCAD drawing filling one monitor and move all of your menus, toolboxes, info box etc. on to the other monitor. This is very helpful (and the menus etc. hide behind the active window when it is not DesignCAD and then reappear when DesignCAD is active).

Sorry for wasting your time if this was too obvious.

Thanks for the tip. I *wish* I had room for two monitors!

I've got an answer to that. They are on a pole!

Dcad puts all the floating toolboxes on monitor-1. So rather than moving them manually you can just make whichever monitor the main one, then when you open dcad you will just have to drag the drawing window to the other screen. Thing is all the floating command dialogs will also appear on monitor-1 and this may be good for some while bad for others.
