The customizable nature of the product makes it impossible to support running two instances at the same time.

With the right display drivers (and functionality of those drivers combined with Windows functionality) it is usually possible to stretch XMetaL Author across multiple monitors, and that may help you. You can then open two (or more) documents within XMetaL Author and tile them using the options on the Window menu.

We are aware that some people may still not be happy with this solution and we are looking at making changes that may help both with this, and making more pixels available to you in general, by possibly changing the way other parts of the application function, including the Resource Manager, Element List, Attribute Inspector, etc.
