model and drawing open in separate monitors

model and drawing open in separate monitors


i have a dual-monitor setup; can Inventor have either a part or assembly open in one window, and the associated drawing for the part/assembly open in the other window? at first glance this doesn't seem possible and would be a shame; other CAD programs can do this and it's a great productivity enhancer...


RE: model and drawing open in separate monitors

Open both files.
Restore Down each window.
Restore Down Inventor.
Drag Inventor across both monitors to fill screens (but don't Maximize).
Go to View Tile Vertically.

RE: model and drawing open in separate monitors

You can also simply open 2 instances of Inventor. 1 on each monitor.
