In ShowSim Backyard v4.0.5.0, when running dual monitors, I have an issue with the timeline.  I'm on a laptop and a standalone monitor.  IF the 2nd (standalone) monitor is extended to the RIGHT of the main (laptop) monitor, I can move everything between the monitors.  If the 2nd monitor is extended to the LEFT, I can move everything EXCEPT the timeline to the 2nd monitor.  When I try to move the timeline, it hard-stops at the primary (laptop) monitor and will flash briefly between the two monitors intermittently until I release the mouse button.  Can't move it off the primary monitor.

ALSO, is there a reason the simulation window doesn't "snap" to full-screen when dragged to the top of the monitor like the Effect Browser and Cue List Windows do?  (this isn't an issue, just a curiosity).

Thanks,

Donnie

Currently the Timeline can only be dragged off the right side of the screen, so the second monitor has to be to the right. I've never tested dragging it to the left, so I'll have to see if that works correctly and then if it does I can remove the left side limit that currently forces it back onto the screen if you try to drag it off on the left side.

I'm not sure why the main window doesn't full screen when dragging it to the top like the others do. It's not something the code is intentionally doing, so it is some kind of glitch. You would think it should behave the opposite, with the main window doing that and then the child windows not doing it. Personally I wish I knew a way to just disable that full-screen feature so that none of my programs will accidentally full-screen when they get too close to the top. That's in my top 10 list of most annoying Windows features.

Thanks for the info. The way our desk is setup at home, our spare monitor needs to be on the left. If you wouldn't mind (when you have time) testing it, it'd be greatly appreciated.

Not as showstopper, but a "nice to have."

As for the full-screening thing, like I said, was just a "note."

Thanks!

Apparently 2nd monitors can also be placed above your primary, so that is another untested situation.
