Put 2D instruments on 2nd monitor?? P3D v4.3

Recommended Posts

Just switched from FSX to P3D.  I want to be able to place 2D instruments (like the 2D GNS 530, or the A2A 2D clipboard) onto my second monitor.  Primary monitor has P3D VC.  This was always possible in FSX when in Full Screen mode, and I just assumed it would work the same in P3D, but apparently not.  I've searched and searched, and am struggling to find guidance. 

I've tried to create a new view, Undock it, and move it to the 2nd monitor.  I can do this, but there's no option to make this view "panel only" where I can drag/drop a 2D instrument.

Any ideas?

Thank you. James

Also, I discovered where I can right-click on the 2D instrument/gauge itself and choose "Undock".  This would work fine, except for the fact that the gauge automatically maximizes to the size of my monitor.  Anyone know how to stop the gauge from maximizing/resizing?
