two monitors

Veerappa Chetty
Hi, I have set up two monitors. I am using windows XP.  I would like to keep
one window- command line in one monitor and the script and graphs in the
second monitor. How do I set it up?
It works for word documents simply by dragging the document. It does not
work if I drag and drop the scripts window. Is R not compatible for this?
Thanks.

Hi:
I use two monitors and I didn't have to do nothing to do what you want done. Try to print an R graph then drag it to the second screen. If that doesn't work, you may need to go to your settings and identify screen one and screen two from the dialog box. Good luck

Hello,

I work with Windows XP and do what you are hoping to do.  Instead of using
the built in script dialogue editor I use TINN-R.  I can drag either this
editor or the R Console to different monitors.  I often have to make sure
that the TINN-R editor panel is not maximized as that will hide any
graphics windows that I generate.
