Description

Working with two displays is a "must have". The secondary monitor is used mostly for realtime & big preview window (using the most accurate display). The first monitor is used to manipulate UI and browse pictures, and it is commonly cheap office lcd.

I've read wiki about dual head, but I don't want to speak about technical aspects. As a user I just need to open preview window and it must be a dedicated option for the secondary display (not "floating" panel). It must always be opened on the 2nd screen, with possibility to toggle (temporary hide).

Please look how Lightroom handles 2nd display. It is not the best way (I can't compare before/after on 2nd display), but it works for most common tasks (it displays the picture on the pro display).

No. I'm a stupid pig. Thank you for a reply. Now I know everything. This is a real curse of many Linux projects. In such case I just wish you good luck. Bye.
