Detach Chat WIndows for Dual Display

Postby basem2502 » May 7th, 2009, 11:46 pm

Hi,

I'm using dual display and would like to keep the board+pieces on one monitor. Is there any way I can detach the chat window and move it to the second monitor?

Thanks,

Basem

What about if you uncheck the "Use Combined Window" preference?

That should put everything into a separate window, right?

Hmmm. A quick test with changing to a two-monitor setup triggered an
internal Vassal Error, which the bug reporter wasn't able to report to
Vassal. [I'll post it separately later today.]

No, that refers to something else entirely.  (I think that's the option for the turn tracker).

That sounds serious.  Make sure you provide specifics.

Well, a bit more testing indicates that this should work just fine.
I was able to place the separate windows for each item on whichever
display I wanted.
