Camtasia Product Request : Undock Canvas, Tools and Timeline

I really appreciate the option to undock the canvas to a second screen but I would also love to undock the timeline and tools on seperate screens.

This would allow me to use my three screens, one for the canvas, one for the tools and one for my timeline. Since I have multiple tracks on my timeline, this option would allow me to see all of them while editing. At this time, with the timeline and tools on the same screen, I am wasting alot of time ajusting my window to see the tools section when I need it and then ajusting it again to see all of my tracks.

Ajusting the high of the tracks to the minimum hight is an option but then I cannot see in detail of what is on them therefore I am constantly ajusting the high. Having the option to move the timeline on it's own screen would be an amazing feature that would greatly improve the workflow and reduce the time it takes to edit my videos. I hope to see this feature in future versions of Camtasia because I really love this product.
