I'm having an issue w/ running multiple LBC docks on dual monitors. I would like to show dock1 on monitor1 and dock2 on monitor2. I've tried w/ either creating both docks (1 & 2) under the same .mcf file, or under 2 different files. The issue is that the 2 docks always appear on the same monitor, if both docks are given no border and a transparent background. If you allow the docks to have borders, you can drag one of the docks to the other monitor. But to disable the border you'll have to open the "Preferences" window, and as soon as you close the "Prefs" window, one of the docks will jump to the monitor of the other one. In other words, everytime I open & close the "Prefs" window, both docks will appear on the same monitor, which makes it impossible in this fashion to run the docks w/ no borders on 2 different monitors. Even if I give them borders, so that I can drag one to the other monitor, when LBC is restarted, both docks will reappear on the same monitor.
The only way I know to run 2 border-less docks on 2 different monitors, is to run 2 instances of LBC.exe. Then in the "Prefs" of each instance uncheck one or the other of the docks. This way each instance of LBC executable can run one of the docks w/ no border on a different monitor. The problem again is that even if "Start with Windows" is checked under "Options" for both instances, when restarted only one instance, and therefore only one of the docks, will appear, and you'll have to manually run another instance on the other monitor and adjust the prefs.
Is my system misbehaving or is that the current design?
