PowerPoint 2007 Dual Monitor

Is there "true" dual monitor support? Is it being worked on? Will it ever come? Major limitation of software!! I would like to run powerpoint in dual monitor mode (ie. presenter view on main screen, presentation on second monitor.)


That's not a problem with crossover office, wine, or powerpoint. I do this using "xrandr" to configure the second screen on my laptop with integrated Intel 950 graphics. Also, GNOME and KDE have their own issues when dual monitors are used. GNOME always puts the slide show on the "main LCD", so you have to configure the second screen as a copy of the original rather than an extension.

The real issues here is with ease of management of the display (I use ubuntu) and some distributions are better than others (same for video cards - nvidia config is pretty good - Intel 950 controls are crap). Also, the quirks of GNOME and KDE with multiple displays factors in. It will take some work searching and reading, but you can get it to work.

Hope that gives you some useful information to figure out what you need for your hardware setup.

Whoops. I see you are running on Mac (OS X I assume), so the issues may be a little different there since OS X has good 2nd monitor support built in. Sorry for the confusion. I did not see the category at first.
