Large monitors and second monitor

Wish I could set the visible_message_lines to only show over the model tree.

I want the dash board over the model window.

Let me know what you guys think.

If I could put the visible_message_lines and model tree on the second monitor that would be nice too.

I've found that option virtually worthless. No matter what I set it to, the dashboard grabs some of the space, leaving me with less than 2 lines. Pretty crappy when many Pro|E messages are 2 lines.

I opened a cal with tech support on this a year or two ago saying it was broken, it didn't stay at what it was set to. They, of course, said it was intended functionality. It only sets the initial visible lines.
