No.

What are you trying to do? Maybe someone has some ideas on how you could accomplish what you want to do in another way.

MM, if you're remembering from the Thanksgivings past, there were 2 approaches:

- Steve (who passed on) had a program that did that, but no longer works (I think)

- You could put a stack of books in a favorites group. Then open several groups. This wasn't a layout, and the books not linked, etc. But a nice way to ADD to an existing layout, best as a separate window.

I'm studying the book of Revelation. What I'd like to do is to have a layout for my commentaries and another layout for background material. I'd like to have one layout on my first monitor and the second layout on my second monitor.

With Windows 10 you can have several desktops open, but when I select "new desktop" and open L8 it opens my original desk top and NOT a totally new desk top.

hope that makes sense.

I would do this by having one group of resources in a floating window--then I would put the floating window would be on the secondary monitor.

I don't quite grasp your problem with desktops, but I know that this works for me and others.

In a way. My primary sermon prep layout consists of three windows, screenshots below. Multiple windows are saved in layouts. I use three screens: my 15" MacBook Pro, a 30" View Sonic monitor, and my 13" iPad. As long as I've saved the windows in their proper place, opening that layout will put the windows where they belong.

1) My primary study window.

2) A parallel setup:

3) Several custom guides:
