I have just downloaded 8.5 to play with web views ... plugged my laptop into my new 20 inch cinema display .... tried dragging a fresh new template from my laptop to my cinema display to find that it bounced right back to the laptop....

All previous versions allows this. So must be a bug.

This is a nightmare for my clients who work on laptops and cinema as well as me as i bought the thing recently to have more desktop space to develop my FileMaker Solutions...

Anyone else had this!!!

Hi LaRetta,

Thanks for your response.

I have posted a quick mov file to illustrate (its a bit jerky)

Window 1 is the FileMaker template "Inventory" being dragged and dropped onto the cinema display then moved around and dropped in several places. This window is running in 8v3

Window 2 is the same FileMaker template "Inventory" being dragged and dropped onto the cinema display but when it is dropped anywhere it snaps back to the laptop monitor. This window is running in 8.5

Bug, Bug, Bug!!!

I hope they didnt change this because of Get(WindowHeight) flaws. This could really screw me if not resolved.

Tell me what you think.

I've got the same set up. The problem only occurs if:

1. Running 8.5 and not 8.0.3

2. Your dock and menu are on the laptop

(I have my dock and menu on the cinema display)

3. The cinema display is arranged on the RIGHT rather than the LEFT

Hope this stops you thinking you are going mad!

Also - if you have the dock and menu on the Cinema Display, you cannot make a window width bigger than that of the laptop display, until you move the window to span both displays, then you can adjust it to be as big as you want.
