As many of you have touted the advantages of dual monitors . . . My ??s follow:
Replacing 4-yr. old (now too slow) Dell 360 Precision WrkStation with: NewSys: WinXP Pro - Dell 490 PrecisionWorkStation - 2G Mem - 80Gig Hard Drv - Dual Monitor IntFace/Contrlr Apps: FMkr 7.2 - PShop - Illustrtr - AcrobtPro 5.05 w/Dstlr - MSWrd - VisualBasic - ColourChameleon Try'd 24" Wide Screen on this sys; but, aspect of wide-screen only stretches display to fill monitor area. Such that 8.5x11-in page at 100% displays at 10.25x11 . . . like its quite chubby. Type and graphics also display pixelized/distorted. Can change aspect to normal, but then, margins are completely dead and type still pixcelized. So, returning 2407 monitor for two regular (aspect) screens. Question(s) is . . . How to direct certain apps to display on which screen and (FMkr) how to have (para/table/structure/etc). designer "drop-downs" to appear on screen2 next to the screen1 that would display the main/page window. And . . . should I care how the mouse knows that the right boundary of screen #1 is really the left edge of screen #2 and will flow across? Or, will I also need multi-mices? 8^) best to all, dick doll sgmlindy at tds,net All outgoing mail & attachments checked by Norton AntiVirus.
