    like NX2....can you drag the tools to the 2nd monitor freeing up more real estate for the pic being edited on monitor 1

    It does support dual monitors now but as far as I know ( I haven't upgraded to V2 yet ) it only allows you to bring up another image on the 2nd screen and not the tools palette like you would in CS. I would love it to be a feature in V2 ( as many other people I'm sure ) as it just makes more sense than what they currently allow. Let's hope it will be a feature in the next update …

    Is this in Lightroom 2? I thought that is what Randy asked about...

    I haven't been able to modify the 2nd screen, other than to change from Live to Normal...
     
  10. It is in CS2, see Randy's question in post #3
     
  11. Yes Lightroom 2 Supports Dual Monitors. Look just above the filmstrip at the bottom on the left hand side. You will see a 1 and 2 in a box. Have your secondary monitor on and working, click on the 2 and you will be set. you can change the options from there. :smile:
