Working with IDEA on a secondary monitor is currently not possible. Will
this 'killer bug' be fixed in 5.0.2? I couldn't tell from reading the
tracker issue.

Hello etienne,

This is identified Sun issue: http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=4980592
No way we're able to fix or work that around in IDEA.

Will this 'killer bug' be fixed in 5.0.2? I couldn't tell from reading

I use two monitors with IDEA 4.5 and 5.0 on Windows XP Professional (and
Windows 2000 Workstation previously).

Ciao,
Gordon

Just so you know that you are NOT crazy. I cannot use IDEA
(v4x or v5x) on the second monitor that I use. I have dual monitors on my OSX G4 box. If I move IDEA to the "exended" area, the popups and auto complete windows still show up on the "main" screen. It's annoying but I can live with it.

This issue was fixed in the current prerelease DP3 of the 5.0 JDK for OS X.

Hi Maxim

Thanks for lettinkg me know.
Looks like this bug should have been fixed for JDK 1.5(tiger-b41).

It seems to still be kind of broken.  Windows located above or the left of my primary Windows display never get updates.  If you position your primary monitor in the upper left, do your problems go away?
