easy-- get a big monitor. 30" 2560*1600 is for me much nicer than two smaller panels. Equivalent to 2 20" 1600x1200's in portrait mode stacked side-by-side but without the annoying seam.

but personal preference applies of course.

Or just undock the properties panel and move it off where you want.

Of course this assumes that you have one display spanning both screens as opposed to 2 displays with one on each screen. And it assumes that you can keep track of which undocked dialog goes with which open VEE session.

Maybe what's needed is to add "auto-hide" to the undocked dialogs and then make them pop up next to the object that they apply to and hide themselves when not needed. That way focus could stay in one area rather than having to go find the dialog.
