To save changes to a Profile:
There are several community-sourced Profiles available for download from http://www.bluebeam.com/us/support/extensions-profiles.asp. Download and install the one called "Multiple Monitor" by following the installation instructions found at the top of the page.
Once you have installed the Multiple Monitor Profile:
Moving tabs: You can move any of the tabs around by simply dragging and dropping to where you want them.
You can also use the position wheel that appears when you drag a tab away from its current place to split panels horizontally or vertically. Just select one of the directions on the wheel to split the panel and move the tab accordingly.
In the example below, dragging the Tool Chest tab and selecting the down arrow on the position wheel splits the panel horizontally and automatically moves it below the Thumbnails tab.
Showing and hiding tabs: To hide a tab, just right-click it and select Hide. To show a hidden tab, right-click an empty space next to a currently displayed tab and go to Show, then select the tab you want to show.
Resizing windows: To resize a window, simply place your cursor over one of the edges of the interface to reveal a double arrow. Once it appears, click and drag to stretch or shrink the window.
Splitting the main workspace: With the tabs moved to another monitor, the main workspace is now quite large. You might want to take advantage of this by splitting the main workspace so that you can view more than one PDF at a time. To do so, just click the desired split screen option from the Navigation bar (if it's hidden, use the keyboard shortcut F4 to show it).
