Thought I would share this setup, using iDisplay to connect iPad 3 to MBA as second display and used as editor in Compose mode.

The person who says it can't be done should not interrupt the person doing it.

What do you use as a stand for the iPad? It looks great, btw.

I use the Ekit Universal Tablet Stand from Amazon. It's excellent and just the right height.

That is brilliant.

I have AirDisplay to use my iPad as a second monitor for my MBP, but can't figure out how to separate two screens in Scrivener, i.e. the composition mode and corkboard. Is there a command in Scrivener, or do you open the project twice? I am trying to replicate your image but have been unable to do so.

Go to Preferences > Compose and tick Use secondary screen if available.
