I use two monitors with my computer, is it possible to spread the work windows over both monitors? As it is I can only have the windows within the main Logos application, which is obviously only open on one monitor.

I am running Windows XP Media Edition SP3 on an HP DV8000 widescreen laptop.I frequently run a 36" Gateway monitor for extra screen real estate. I do not have the windows maximized but do have their borders stretched out to fill the screen. I then grab one window and drag it off my laptop screen onto the 2nd monitor. I do remember having to choose that option in settings somewhere but can't remember where. If you are running dual monitors on a desktop I am sure the video card manual should cover that.

I have my Logos workspace stretched across two 22" monitors.  As was mentioned above, you can't do this full screen, but you can restore down and just stretch it to fill both screens and it works great.  I feel really cramped when I run logos on my laptop now and don't have as much room to play with...

Libronix 4 is supposed to work better with multiple monitors, which I assume means the ability to spread resources across multiple monitors without having to just stretch the application. But Libronix 4 isn't out and has no release date mentioned so the suggestions here will do in the meantime. :)

You have two options:

  • Run a single instance of Logos. Do not maximize the window. Stretch the window to cover both monitors. (I am assuming that you have set your graphics configuration to allow each monitor to function independently.)
  • Run two instances of Logos, and you can maximize both, one for each monitor.

The first is preferable since you won't mess up note files, and you can have all the data 'talk' to each other within Logos. More info and pics HERE: http://bibleandtech.blogspot.com/2008/06/this-is-what-im-talkin-bout-dual.html

(BTW, this forum still does not allow for quick insertion of links using Firefox. Grr...)

How do you do that? I can't start a second copy of Libronix.

I was not lucky.  The page http://www3.telus.net/jmccomb/Libronix/index.html is gone.

Do you have a backup of the tools from that page?

WOW! Wish I'd known about this a long time ago. What other sites are worth accessng that have similar add-on tool collections? (maybe start a diff thread, if there are a lot)
