Multiple Monitor Troubles

I'm sure many of you have suffered the same issue that I have when using multiple monitors on your desktop workstation or an extra monitor with your laptop. You plug in at the office, make use of having the extra screen area, then off out to see a customer or off home only to find that when you're working on your laptop the dialogue boxes that you moved to the other screen in the office are now sat off the screen on your laptop! How on earth can you move or access a dialogue box that you can't see?

Well, my colleague Justin Hoey based in the US posted this great tip on his YouTube Channel recently that shows you exactly how to retrieve those missing dialogue boxes:

We've just used it here in Ireland with Autodesk Vault Manufacturing to retrieve a settings dialogue that was somewhere off screen and it worked perfectly!

Thanks Justin.
