floating resizable windows

Post by la peste » Sat Mar 21, 2009 2:05 pm

It's quite a pleasure to be able to resize Live in the current beta.
A lot of us are wishing to get some floating windows.
I would dream of getting the best of both worlds : floating windows which we could individually resize.

Yes it would be handy here ... 3 x 22' widescreens and I can't drag any live windows off onto another screen. Seems a bit of a strange restriction given I can 'float' any loaded VSTs freely onto any screen. Surely it can't be that hard to implement floating windows for the browser or clip/track view?

Floating would be awesome. Two screen setups needs that desperately.

Definitely a must. This in advantage Cubase has over Live. It can't be that difficult?

having the floating resizable windows as a setting in preferrences would be best.
one of the reasons i love live so much is because it is so easy to see and work with on my 13" macbook. but if i was using multiple screens i would definately want the floating windows.
