IRT crosshairs and floating windows

Hi everyone,
I just licensed Investor/RT, I like the software a lot, especially the Market Profile charting.

I have two problems though:
1) Multiple displays - I have a notebook and external display (different resolutions), I d like to have Market Profile chart on the notebook main display and other charts on the external display. I cant do that because of the main window that is a space container for everything.
2) Horizontal crosshair - I cant find it anywhere, how do I enable it? I am completely lost without it

Anyone help?

1) Right click - floating window
2) On chart toolbar is an option for show crosshair.

1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

To place a chart outside its parent frame container, you need to make the chart a floating window. Right click on a chart you want to detach from the container and select 'Floating window'. For the crosshairs, you can access it via the toolbar. If it is not visible then again right click on the chart and select 'Show toolbar' then you should be able to locate one of the tool named Corsshairs On/Off.

You can hold ctrl + shift for crosshairs, or toggle the function on and off on the toolbar.

I'm not sure exactly what the global cursor give you, but take a look at the chart highlighter feature. Investor/RT - Answers* (LinnSoft.com)

I still have problems using multiple displays, as I mentioned I have a laptop (resolution A by B) and an external display (resolution C by D). When I try to maximize the floting window out of the main window, it is either too small or too large, but never fits the actual resolution of a second display.
