First, no  matter what mode my Fn key is in, pressing Control+Alt+K updates my Kindle app.

When I use the menu option the Shortcut Key window opens. The key assignment is correct.  Thoghts?

 

Mostly what I want to find out is if it's possible to have this window open on another monitor. I'm guessing no, since you can't do anything when the window is open.

 

In a kind of related  questions, can I put my Program monitor on a different monitor, and configure it so the Project monitor always open on my second monitor?

PrPro's use of multiple screens works mostly. Unfortunately, the only 'screen' it recognizes as a screen is the one that the UI is set to use as the main UI screen. All other monitors are used as simple +/- pixel points from the upper left pixel of the main UI screen.

As far as ctrl+alt+k goes, your kindle app is running and reserving that keystroke for itself in the OS, so, if in Kindle you turn that off or change the shortcut (pretty bold of them to reserve a system key for an occasional updating) you should gain the shortcut use in PP. I hate it when apps do that.

I at times use PrPro with the 'main' UI on a different screen if the whole app is on that screen for video recording work within PrPro. Other than that, I work with the main UI window on the main UI screen, use a second screen for a panel group with the Production, Projects, and Source monitor, with typically Effects panels in a docked side-panel of that one. And transmit out goes to my third monitor.

 

PrPro normally remembers that project panels go on the 2 screen ... but sometimes it will open or move them to that lower-left panel of the main UI screen and I'll need to move them back.

 

I can't tell from your description exactly what you're thinking of though. Yes, you can drag the Program monitor panel to a different monitor, or you could use the Transmit Out to use a full-screen of the program monitor on the other monitor.

 

You can put the project panel in whatever screen you want.

Thanks for your response.
 
I'm not familiar the the Transmit options. I looked on YouTube and found a video on the Mercury Transmit option.
 
My Surface is docked to a monitor and I use the Extend option to separate them into two independent screens.
 
I've been toying with the terms screen and monitor. Screen as software Monitor as Hardware?  Whatever the distinction it does not appear that they are interchangeable.

You can try "Typing Settings" in Settings dialog. Especially down in Advanced settings at  the bottom.
