    iPad as 2nd display /Merry Christmas

    Messing about as it's Christmas Eve and everyone else has probably stopped working...

    I thought I would have another go at using an iPad as a 2nd display for Revit 2013.

    I tried this some time ago with an original iPad but it was a little unstable - now, using a retina display and the AirDisplay app it works very smoothly.

    Had to switch to a lower resolution in fact to make the Properties box bigger on the iPad but overall it is quite good and I might continue with it (must fix the colour of that monitor though - it looks pink).

    Anyway, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all

    well, I'm working, albeit not to hard I just asked my wife if I could borrow her iPad to try as a secondary (actually 4th) monitor and she said NO! So, I guess I won't be able to try this out until whenever she buys a new one...

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you also!

    Sounds like you are well endowed with monitors anyway

    It is near enough 'knocking off' time here in the very wet UK... time for a mince pie, and shut down Revit for a day or two


    cheers,
