    I use illustrator and photoshop mostly... I have my wacom tablet attached to my iMac and I want to have the program full running on the cintiq (which it is), but I want an overall preview window on my iMac screen, so while I am zoomed in close or whatever I can still see a giant overall preview of what I am doing... Anyway thats possible with either? I don't want to have the navigator window be huge cause I use that a lot when zoomed in, or is that my only option?

    In photoshop (CS2) you can go to Window>Arrange>New Window for (your file name). This will bring up a separate window you can drag to your imac. Work on your Cintiq and see the results on your imac. Here's a png.

    The above is possible in Illustrator CS3 - which version are you using?

    CS4, but I checked and it has the same option in the window menu as CS3. Works great! Thanks!
