Thank you Paul! Especially for all the detail. You are absolutely right on 
target, and everything is good now.

Re: Which Monitor to Open LC In

2021-02-23 Thread Paul Hibbert via use-livecode
Sorry, I should have explained more, but I answered just before shutting my Mac 
down for the night. I’m still on Catalina (10.15.7), but this type of control 
doesn’t usually change too much if it’s still there.

To check Spaces, go to System Preferences, open Mission Control and check which 
shortcut is assigned to "Show Deskto"p, it’s usually F3 by default. I prefer 
“Group windows by application” to be off, but that’s just my choice.

Now press the F3 key to open the Spaces view (depending on your keyboard 
settings, you may need to press both the fn key and F3 to access Spaces). If 
you haven’t set any extra desktops before you will see “Desktop 1” for the main 
monitor and “Desktop 2” for the secondary monitor at the tops of the screens. 
Now move the mouse pointer to the grey bar at the top and you should see a “+” 
appear at the right hand side, click on the “+” to add a third Desktop, you 
don’t have to use this, but it will allow you to assign apps to specific 
desktop views. Close the view by clicking on any of the open windows or press 
F3 again.

Now you can right click on the Dock Icon for LC and choose the option to assign 
it to "Desktop on Display 1”, or whichever you prefer.

If you wish to remove any extra Desktops, press F3 then place the mouse pointer 
over a Desktop thumbnail in the top bar and a circle with an X will appear, 
click on that to remove the Desktop. Once you have removed any excess Desktops 
and you are down to Desktop 1 and 2, you will lose the option to assign 
applications to a particular display, I’m not sure what the logic of this is, 
but that’s how it goes.

Re: Which Monitor to Open LC In

I don’t normally use Spaces as I don’t leave a lot apps open, but, when I enter 
Spaces, I see that my MBP monitor is Desktop 1 and my external monitor is 
Desktop 2.

Works for me on OS11.2.1 (Big Sur) on my MacBook out of the box. The actual 
text shown is “Assign to desktop on” and then “Display 1” or “Display 2”.

Right-click (ctrl-click) on the LC icon in the dock and choose “Options” then 
select “Assign to Desktop on Display 1”, should do it.
