Dual screen setup

This was of interest to me as we have all of our machines setup with two screens (although I now run three). Interestingly Revit 9 is a bit more dual screen friendly than previous versions, although what I really want is the ability to keep the element properties and view properties dialogues open permanently on a different screen to the drawing window.

I have heard of a program that is used to split the screens, i did have the name of it (but lost in in the filing system) will have to speak to one of the Building designers in Sydney. He uses it on Vector Works or ArchiCad for the dual screen as those programs don't support dual screen either. I should have this one week after the next user group, i will give it a test run before posting it.

Unless it jumps out of the pile and bites me!

Not sure about ArchiCad, but Vectorworks does support dual-screen systems. I used it for 10 years or so before switching to Revit. Best of all was the ability to have tool palettes, element properties dialogues and the like all open permannetly on the second screen.
