:: Using 2 monitors ::
Customise the size and location of the "stage" by modifiying the parameters on the "prefs.txt" file inside the "Prefs" folders.
For example, the following settings:
[1024, 0]
[800, 600]
would set the size of the stage to 800 by 600 pixels and place the top left of the stage on 1024, 0 coordinates. If you use two monitors or a projector, in this case, the stage would fill the whole second monitor area (or the projector), not showing in the second monitor the control window or the videos you drag from the stage or any open folder.
