    Did you know that you can “un-dock” your tool chest? This is very handy if you are working across multiple monitors. Simply click and hold on the tool chest icon and drag it to where you are working! This can help you save time looking back across the screen to get to your tools.

    This is good @david-cutler my favorite is to show estimators you can undock your Markups List to display on another monitor. This saves a lot of real estate in the drawing area.

      I showed the ‘detached markuplist’ trick to a (self proclaimed) specialist in the office after he said it’s impossible.

      Another thing I use a lot is that I got my Tool Chest locked and I got a secondary column (Thumbnails in the image below) that changes as I go between functions.

      @troy I had no idea that you could undock the Markup List! That is going to be great for monitor real-estate management!

      I think this may be my new favorite Revu feature @troydegroot ! The ability to see more of the Markup List combined with increased real estate in the drawing area is tremendous – especially with multiple monitors!
