OS X: Selena and Multiple Monitors

Also posted in Community, but since I just tested with Selena ...

"Is there anyone here who used IDEA on an OS X system with multiple monitors? When I have IDEA (Selena) on my second screen all the menus appear on the main screen. Is my system weird or is this a bug?"

I'll whack it in JIRA if it is a bug.

I'm using Selena on OS X with 2 monitors. I don't have any issues on either monitor. I assume that you're not talking about the toolbar staying on one monitor? All of the pop-up menus and such appear on whatever monitor Selena is on.

I've encountered this problem once (went away after a restart of IDEA)
on Windows XP as well in the current EAP.

This happened to me in XP several times. Just moved idea to my desired screen and restarted it.

I use Selena with multiple monitors on OS X and I have seen the problem you describe. However, it's easy to get around. Just make sure that when you start Selena you have both monitors connected. The IDE will appear on the main one first and then you can drag it to the secondary one. Right-click menus then appear on the secondary monitor as they should.

The only time I see menus appear on the wrong monitor is when I already have Selena started on my macbook pro and then come to work and plug it into the secondary monitor. I just shut it down and restart once the secondary screen is plugged in.

Hope that helps.

Nick.
