    multiple screens ?

    Zipzap32 Level 1

      Hello everyone , i am an animate user and also a photoshop user , within photoshop it's possible to resize the workflow on 2 screens so that the workspace is bigger to fold options etc... but not on animate ?? i tried to tweak the options etc ... but when the program is closed and opened the workflow is reset ... So is there a way to go around this ?

          create a custom workspace by clicking window>workspaces>new workspaces.

            no actually i was talking about the general "animate" window ,  the program itself , under photoshop you can resize everything on 2 screens for instance , close the program and still have the same areas back when you reopen it , whereas animate shrinks the workspace to only 1 screen when you reopen everything so ... anyone else ?

                  but that's the way you setup custom workspaces in animate so if that doesn't work for you, what you want to do is not supported.

                    I really hope you don't mean you're trying to span the main window across multiple monitors. That would be awful trying to operate any controls split in half by a pair of monitor bezels.


                    What you're supposed to do for multiple monitors is undock any controls or panels you want on the other monitor and drag them over. On my setup I have nothing but the timeline, stage, and tool palette on my primary monitor. Everything else is shoved over onto the secondary monitor.
