any plans for flex to support dual screen PC setups? I've an idea where I can use my Surface Pro 3 as a touch panel ... with a set of floating function buttons and a second screen for the main pan adapter screen. So the surface functions like a control panel .. but on glass :)  ... btw using the surface and SSDR is very cool! To be able to jump round the bands literally at the touch of my finger ... I need a large touch screen now :)

Al, NN4ZZ put that out as an idea. You should look it up and like it. This raises the like counter which is used as a ranking indicator for suggestions. S(er)SDR will come out of the gate with pinnable pans and control widgets (phne, tx, cw/phne, eq, etc)

21.5 - 23 inch touch screens are not very expensive.

I just clicked "like" on that. I'd definitely like more flexibility in positioning panadapters or even breaking them out into their own windows where I can place them wherever I want. Not sure where I would want this in the priority list though. It's a nice to have option but I don't think I'd want to delay other interesting ideas/features that I'm sure they are working on.  If it could be done in parallel, then sure.
