Feature request from Matt Jolley (a cardiologist with a lot of experience doing segmentation in slicer).

The former...It is nice to work on the axial view etc on a full screen while still being able to see the other two.

No hurry, just thought it would be a cool feature in the era of cheap large monitors.

Hi Matt -

Which views are you refering to? Like putting the axial on the big screen and sagittal and coronal on the other? Or do you mean the module panel - if it's the latter, you can already do that by dragging it out of the main window. We could probably make you a floating slice view too if that's what you need - would take some thought, but it's probably doable...

If you can do this already and I have not figured it out please let me know.

This can work, but there are going to be some issue to sort out with the layouts so I don't see this being integrated in the upcoming release.
