The restrictions around which elements that are displayed on which screen when you've got more than one should be removed.

It should be possible for any of the screens attached to the computer to be used for any particular purpose.

For example, whilst in Develop, I should be able to assign the Grid display to the same display as the one with all of the Lightroom menus and widgets, but I can't.

Rather than just have one or two things fixed here and there, I'd encourage the Lightroom team to start over from scratch and approach the multi-screen problem with a clean slate with a view to solving issues such as:
- allowing different "work modes", so that I don't need to leave LR when I've got both a landscape and portrait mode monitor attached and I want to use the respective monitor for respective images
- allow one monitor to be a dedicated (live) loupe/survey across all modes and for LR to recognise that and use the other monitor for "something else"
- support using compare to allow as many images to be simultaneously compared as there are screens, and which screen should be used for the before/after, not just the primary screen..
... and so forth.
