work with 2 screens

Hello

 

I read several posts but never found an answer to my question :

 

How is it possible to configure Autocad to work with 2 screens ?

The only way I fond is to stretch autocad windows and configure views

 

Is there any possibilities to tell autocad to use 2 screens ?

Hi,

 

>> Is there any possibilities to tell autocad to use 2 screens ?

What other way do you think that it should work instead of stretching the application-window and/or drawing-window?

Well, you can move your palettes, toolboces, command-line-area onto the second screen.

That depends on your hardware and drivers.  nVidia calls them DualView and Span, others may use different terms.  The first treats the desktop as if there are two adjacent desktops, one for each monitor; maximizing AutoCAD or any other application will fill the current monitor.  The latter treats the desktop as one continuous and very wide desktop; maximizing AutoCAD or any other application will fill both monitors.

 

Both settings have advantages and disadvantages.
