    SITUATION: I have two monitors connected to my computer and use WinXP's "extend my windows desktop onto this monitor" option so that I can use both seamlessly.

    ISSUE: When switching between virtual desktops only the windows on the "primary monitor" change.

    REQUEST: Enhancement which causes Virtual Dimension to extend the virtual desktop to both monitors and change contents of both monitors when changing virtual desktops.
    This may want to be implemented as a configuration option for those who don't want this feature.

    PS Excellent program.

      Current version is working as requested.

      Not sure if:
      a. hadn't had my first cup of coffee
      b. issue only on fresh install & login / logout fixed the issue.

      I have the same issue. What I have found is that if a window is set to maximum on the primary monitor then it becomes sticky on the other desktops. This seems to be a newish development for me as I was not annoyed by it in the past.

    SITUATION: I have two monitors connected to my computer and use WinXP's "extend my windows desktop onto this monitor" option so that I can use both seamlessly.

    ISSUE: When switching between virtual desktops only the windows on the "primary monitor" change.

    I use Win7 Ultimate and the behaviour you described above is exactly the way I would like to use Virtual Dimension. So I have 2 Monitors and I would like to use Virtual Dimension only effecting the primary monitor. So I would like to be able to move applications (like Outlook, Word, etc.) to the secondary monitor and to stick on it independently which desktop I have selected in Virtual Dimension.

    Could anybody help me, how I could achieve this?

    Thanks,
    Joerg

     
  • There is no such feature at the moment.
    Yet the behavior can be achieved by displaying the windows from monitor 2 on all desktop (in window properties  or in VD submenu of the window's system menu).

    Yet the behavior can be achieved by displaying the windows from monitor 2 on all desktop (in window properties  or in VD submenu of the window's system menu).

    Yes, I use that feature of VD so far. But unfortunately the Icons of these "all desktops"-application appear in all VD Desktops (I mean the small overview window). So is there a possibility to hide the Icons?

    Thanks for your fast answer so far,
