GLM 1.4.3 Window Locks in W7 on secondary monitor

I am new to the forum, first post.

I am curious if anyone else has seen this issue with the GLM window get stuck in a location on an extended monitor.

My system specs are below.

I have two monitors, stacked bottom (#1) and top (#2), and then extend the displays.

Display #1, on the bottom, is primary and has the windows task bar, #2, on top is bare.

If I drag and drop the GLM window up to the second monitor, the GLX window gets stuck and I can't move it. The Opt. db Display gets stuck as well.

The GLM functions all work, however, I have to "close" the app from the task bar and restart to get in back on display 1 and moveable.

If I extend the 2 second monitor, side by side, the GLM window does not get stuck when I drag it side ways on the second monitor.

Is this the proper place to post these issues?

I moved my "main monitor" back to the top position (#1 on top of #2)... this resolves this issue in this configuration.

Hi,

This is a known issue. Some graphical libraries inside the software have problems with negative coordinates. You should avoid configuring secondary monitor on the left or top side of the main monitor.
