    I have one license and 3 monitors. I normally copy the files twice with *.copy1, *.copy2

    but the copies do not have menus to them. Do I need to buy 2 more licenses? Or is there a work around to be able to work on the other 2 copies?

    Welcome to the Brainery @jvldraft !

    There could be a number of answers to your question – but none of them should require multiple licenses.

    For your workflow do you need 3 copies of the file open at the same time, or are you simply looking to view 3 pages in the same document at the same time (one page per monitor)?

    Revu allows you the ability to open multiple copies of the drawings in multiple tabs at the same time.
    Simply split your screen. The drag the new tab to another monitor.

    They could even have the exact same name and Revu will open the file just fine. as long as the path is different. Not only that, but even beyond the excellent recommendations before me, you can open up multiple instances of Revu (if you for example, wanted your toolchests to be next to every file).

    Welcome to the community @Jvidraft and great question. I went ahead and moved this question from the JavaScript group to the General Question group. “General Questions” is a better fit and you may find additional helpful tips.
