Can Transit's panes be moved to a secondary screen?

I'm running Transit in VMware Fusion (on a Mac) and I noticed that I cannot move any pane to my secondary screen.

Is this a limitation of the virtualisation or isn't Transit capable to position panes on any other screen than the primary?

Workaround May 1

I think Transit does not allow you to move the panes outside of the main window borders. So, you need to stretch your main Transit screen to your second monitor (if you can do that in your virtual environment), and then you can move the panes over there. This works for me in Windows, I just tried.

Thanks, but I cannot verify that, since my Thunderbolt monitor has a low resolution and my iMac has a Retina screen. Anyway, I was just asking because of another thread here, where a user listed some CAT tools that can use multiple screens.

Why does resolution matter for trying it out? May 2

You could still try, even if the resolution of your two screens is different. As long as you can use the second monitor in extension mode, you should be able to stretch the Transit window over two screens. All you need to see is whether you can slide the pane between your monitors. You can see that regardless of the resolution, no?

Transit on two monitors works perfectly for me May 2

Hi,

I have been using Transit NXT on 1.5 monitors ever since I got a 2nd monitor to work on. I have set my Transit to show the editor windows on 2 3rds of my first monitor with the Terminology window on the last 3rd and Fuzzy and Concordance windows on the upper half and lower half of the second monitor. That leaves half a monitor for my browser/original PDF file or other applications I need during translation.

Pulling Transit onto the second monitor and setting it as wide as I want it never turned out to be a problem. However, I use two identical monitors with identical resolution in a Windows 10 setup.

HTH

feasible; usually up to six May 2

Besides separate video-cards, one could use a native video support (ATI -- HydraVision; nVidia -- nView), and there're plenty of third-party options like 'Actual Multiple Monitors'.

It's may be quite impressive to try ATI Eyefinity/NVIDIA Surround)

Try Dual Monitor Tools May 19

I use Dual Monitor Tools on Virtualbox.

Lets you set a shortcut to maximise a window over two monitors.
Very useful also for memoQ, DVX etc.
