Split Blender Window

Post by mikolaskova »

Hello.

I'm using Blender with Mac OS X and would like to use it on two Monitors. Is there a possibility to split the Blender wndow? (to place some views on the left and som on the right monitor)

Thanks.

If you have a 2 or 3 button mouse, you can right click on borders of each part of the windows to split them or join them. For a one button mouse, you should be able to alt click. What I did was get rid of all the subwindows with join. Then I right clicked at the bottom of the whole Blender window and split it there. From this point, add all the windows you want.

You can save and make new settings under the pop-up in the top that begins with SCR:

blender works on 2 monitors setup, but allocate enough video memory only for the size of the main monitor (the one with menus). You can encounter problems if one of the sub-window exceed this size. But you can spawn the sole blender window on the monitors.

What i usually do is to place the blender window on one monitor and the render one on the other.

Thank You for the help... But maybe I have to ask again:
I know how to split one view into different views... that is no problem. But I wonder whether there is a possiblity to place these views on two monitors?

(For example: side, front, top and some userdefined view on one monitor and the camera view on the other...)

(As it works with the render-Window, which is a separate window from the beginning)

Blender GUI sits in 1 window. So the answer is no.
You cannot split the blender GUI in more then 1 (OS) window.
A forum search will guide you to discussion on this topic.
Issues are: different display sizes, hardware acceleration, effort vs users.
