    For all those Photoshop people with a dual monitor setup, who love having their tools on one screen and image they are working on the other......

    Is it possible to get spaces to work like a dual monitor setup, so that when the mouse/pen reaches the edge of the screen in will automatically jump to the next space?

    Is it possible for spaces to allow you to have your image open in one space and the tools open in the other.

    If someone could do this hack it would turn a single monitor 17" Macbook Pro into a portable, dual screen Mac Pro beating machine.

    Before Leopard was released I was hoping this is what spaces would do.... but am disappointed it doesn't

    What do you guys think?

    That is basically how it works already, you can set up expose to link to spaces when the mouse reaches a corner.

    This allows you to have multiple program windows open on multiple spaces - essentially drag the program window to the corner and it will take you to the next space, window in hand. Put the mouse in a corner alone and it will bring up all the spaces, and you can choose whichever you wish.

    I found that in Photoshop, the you can put the documents into any space you wish, while the tools are displayed on all of the spaces.

    I haven't used it much but it is a great feature, I have 2 23's anyways so it would be better off on my Dell laptop!

    is it possible to move the tools in photoshop to the other screen (without having to maximising them and moving it manually?
