    To summarise my discussion with Piers:

    While the v8.7 docking bars (Gateway, Properties, etc.) can be floated outside the GSA window and across to a second screen, the new docking bars that we're implementing in v9.0 have much improved behaviour, auto-hide, easier docking/undocking, (and they react to WinSplit docking commands on the second screen).

    GSA v9.0 will make far greater use of docking bars, offering bars that allow labels, contours and diagrams to be specified, entity definitions, modify entities, etc.

    We'll experiment with allowing Table Views to be dragged outside the GSA window.

    To be more specific, I think being able to float the Gateway, Properties Box and other similar windows outside the boundary of the main GSA window on to a second monitor would be useful. This is distinct from just stretching the main GSA window to cover both monitors as this introduces its own problems with gaps between monitors and mismatched displays.
