Problems using dual screens

Problems using dual screens

I'm testing a dual screen setup with Lotus 123, and having some problems keeping the various popups on the side that I want. I've got it so the program itself appears on the screen I want, but the opening screen (where you can select a spreadsheet to open, etc) pops up on the other screen. Even if I drag it over to the screen, the next time I open the app, it pops up on the wrong screen.
Its an NVIDIA card, and I've loaded the NVIEW drivers, which have a feature for controlling how specific apps behave, but none of my experimentation with these settings have fixed the problem. Do any of you have a dual screen setup, or some ideas on this?

RE: Problems using dual screens

I've been using dual screens for a little over a year. I use both versions 5.0 and 9.8.

5.0 will only open in the primary screen. Once opened it can be moved to the second screen but will not stay there. Additionally all pop-up screens appear on the primary monitor.

9.8 will open in either screen or you can open multiple full screen versions in both screens. However all pop-up screens appear in the primary screen. I doubt that this problem can be solved since IBM really does not support smartsuite.

RE: Problems using dual screens

Not the answer I was hoping for, but at least I can stop tearing my hair out, thanks.
