Yes, of course it’s an OS thing really. I think it’s reasonable to want the Mac control panel configuration to mimic the physical arrangement I actually have. If I don’t do this, I’m always trying to make the mouse go somewhere which the Mac doesn’t see as part of the screen real estate. Since my physical arrangement is that the monitor is higher and to the side of the MacBook, that’s what I’ve set up in the control panel. The fact that this gives problems has clearly got to be a bug.
After looking carefully at the bugs Martin has listed (one of which was raised by me, centuries ago!), I decided to submit a new report: it’s 20867. The mother ship may find that they can combine it with 19302, but I will leave that to them. Graham > On 13 Jan 2018, at 16:55, J.
