    Full Screen Preview of Canvas with Dual Monitor Cintiq Setup

    Hello.  Does anyone out there have a way of creating a second window of the image you are working on and displaying it full screen on a secondary monitor when using a Cintiq 12wx?  Basically, you work on the detail work on the Cintiq and see it in the context of the entire image on your second monitor.  I know this can be done pretty easily in Photoshop, but have not yet found a way to do it in Painter 11 for Mac.  Any info is greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

    Painter doesn't have that capabiltiy as PS does.  There is a workaround way of doing it but it's a little more involved.  It's explained HERE by Jinny. 

    Also you will have to drag the program across both your monitors as Painter does not allow document windows to float outside the main program workspace - only palettes have the ability to do that.

    Win 7 64 bit, 24gb RAM, i7 x980 (6core), 2x GeForce GTX 460

    Well. As a matter of fact that limitation is only for the Windows version. You can float almost everything in Mac, where frequently (not always; there are apps that need a solid window) there is not such thing as a unique aplication window. Painter for Mac has allowed what you say since it came out.

    Cheers!
