Curious, we all have the same info, yet I seem to know we will not see PC10 in 2020 but you do not?

I interpreted Todd’s post to say that PC10 64bit running on Intel is not going to happen, but that PC11 running natively on Apple Silicon was going to take its place, to be delivered in mid 2021. Does this mean there will be a Wild Tools version running natively within PC11?

MWolfe says that although Parallels doesn't support the use of two monitors when emulating Mac OS, it is possible to have Parallels with PowerCADD on one screen and Mac apps on another. That is true. However, is there a way to select which screen Parallels is on? I have a 13" MacBook Pro and two 27" Thunderbolt displays. The 13" monitor is near useless for working in PowerCADD but I can't get it moved to one of the Thunderbolt displays. If it is possible, can someone tell me how?

Brian,

I only have 1 screen so can't try this but if I run a virtual machine not in full screen mode it runs in a window that I can resize at drag anywhere on my screen. Couldn't you do this and drag the window onto your second screen?

You are correct, Derek, in that disabling full screen mode allowed me to move PC to any of my three displays, but although I can re-size the window on a larger display, it just makes everything larger, resulting in poorer resolution. It does not allow me to enlarge the workspace. Pretty useless.

Brian,

You can quickly adjust the resolution on any of your VM screens. You need to install Parallels Tools in the virtual machine and enable Show Developer Tools in the VM settings. The instructions are HERE

Once you've set it up, the menu option below will be available in the View menu. BTW, this option is also available if the VM is in Full Screen Mode.

As mentioned I only have one screen so maybe you could report back how it goes.
