Utilizing The Second Monitor In Final Cut Pro 5

Ok, you've gotten your feet wet with Final Cut Pro by cutting some rough footage and you've become comfortable with capturing video via Firewire, USB 2 and you're cutting sequences and laying down audio. Now it's time to explore improving your work space and easing the burden off of that menu jammed singled screen you've been using and adding a second monitor. I mean truly utilizing a second screen and not just having one for show.

Comfort and Use-ability is in the eye of the beholder, so how you choose to layout your menus and viewers is your own business, but try this suggestion on for size!
Perhaps you have a timeline that is very long and involved and you would be like to be able to read the more detailed names of the clips within the timeline as they appear in sequence. Try expanding the timeline across both screens. If you have run into trouble with the timeline snapping back to a single screen, try dragging by the edge of the window and not the lower-right corner.
