Using a second (dual) computer monitor saves you a ton of time!
What is dual monitor set up?
A dual monitor set up uses two different screens from a single laptop or computer. A second monitor is an extension of your view from the main computer monitor.
Here are the benefits of having a dual monitor set up:
1. Increase productivity.
2. Open blueprints to view the job.
3. Open several apps simultaneously.
4. Multi-task effectively.
Image above shows two same size monitors. The user is logged in to Red Rhino (left screen). Single line diagram is shown on right screen.
There is double the screen space using dual monitors.
When estimating electrical projects, it is beneficial to have one large screen for blueprints.
Picture shows John Kelsey using a laptop with a 32 inch flat screen TV.
He uses Red Rhino on the laptop, and blueprints on the 32 inch TV.
The bigger the monitor the better for viewing blueprints.
