Allow Multiple Test Panels Simultaneously Through MAX

I often use one DAQ device to test the basic functionality of another device and like to be able to quickly do this through test panels.  Unfortunately, MAX does not allow the user to open more than a single test panel at once.  The current workaround for this is to launch the test panels outside of MAX (see this KB).

 

It would be nice to have the same functionality when opening test panels in MAX.  Specifically, I would like to be able to do the following with a Test Panel open:

1.  Be able to navigate through MAX to do things like check device pinouts, calibration date, etc.

 

2.  Be able to move and/or resize the original MAX Window (it always seems to be blocking other applications that I want to view alongside the Test Panel)

 

3.  Open a test panel for a second (or third...) device.

 

It is nice that there is a workaround in place already but I think it would be nice if MAX had this behavior to begin with.

Another workaround for issues #1 and #3 is to open a second instance of MAX, but this doesn't help with issue #2.
