If possible, get the powers that be on your project to provide you with two monitors (preferably flat-screen and of the same size), and use the dual monitor features of Windows.   You can then stretch Visual Studio to display the Orchestration Designer over two windows, rather than one.   Not perfect, but certainly a help.   All BTS 2004 developers should be issued with two monitors as a matter of course!

Spot on there Charles, one of the advantages of so many layoffs at my last company was having a room full of unused monitors, the whole team grabbed an extra monitor. I'd recommend a twin screen setup for all Visual Studio work, it makes life a lot easyer.

I also tried a 4-monitor setup once, which was great, but I kept loosing my mouse pointer...
