Arnold,

I use dual monitors and I have come to love this method. I am new to BibleWorks, but so far I am crazy about the editor and the ability to save in RTF (rich-text). I extend the window over to the second monitor and then I can open whatever resource I prefer (Graphical Search, lexicon etc.). The screenshot is huge so it may not come out the clearest, but dual monitors are really a cheap accessory now. $50 video card, and 1 extra monitor with the same resolution.

I do have dual monitors, but one of the things I like about BW7 is how well it keeps all the info I need on a single screen. When I do pop up a lexicon or synopsis window or graphical search, I do move it on to the other monitor.
In any case, look for the directions for BW7 I give on THIS PAGE (http://www.gettysburgseminary.org/mhoffman/greek/software/bw7%26logos.htm) for what I suggest to my Greek students. In particular:
