I'm using Illustrator CS5.1 and I have two desktops, set on extended desktops. I'm wondering if it is possible to have the same document in Illustrator on both monitors. On one monitor I would like just the preview (the whole image) and on the other I would work on the image(zoomed view). I would like that the preview makes live-time changes, as I would edit the image on the second monitor.

I hope I made myself clear, if you would need any more information feel free to ask.
Thanks for any help :)

maybe you open the file full preview as normal, and make the second screen originally on zoomed view (depending on the screen). but zooming option from the screen will make the work look pixel like if a small image opened in full screen.
