That's sort of my point. Intuition currently maintains a screen list in the order they would be revealed by screen dragging or screen changing with the screen depth gadget; which means that Intuition would probably need to be modified to skip screens displayed on another monitor or maintain a seperate screen list. I'm just suggesting that some OS4 modifications might be required for the dual monitor concept to work.

Personally, I use multiple screens a lot. I have seperate screens for Internet, Dopus4, Pagestream, ImageFX etc. I don't see why it would be preferable to display a screen on a seperate monitor rather that switching screens with the screen menu or depth gadget but I'm O.K. with a dual monitor mouse-driven switching feature as long as there are prefs to control/disable it.
