Default Re: PT2018 on Multiple Monitors

As far as I know, there's no way to isolate just, say, the edit screen, and slide it over to a second monitor without the main PT host screen there. I've tried doing that (on Win-10), but I don't see any way that can be done as everything must sit inside the PT host screen. And, of course, you can keep any plugin screens open as you wish, limited only by your screen real estate, and slide them whereever you wish them to be.

Kinda what I figured. So many windows-based programs allow sub-windows to be undocked from the main screen. Wonder why PT can't allow this.
