MWorks always uses main display

This comment was split from the discussion: voltage from port DAC0

Selection of either the Main Display or Display 2 results in the display on the Main Display (the one with the macOS Dock).

When these preferences are toggled, they are updated in the user-level file (0 for Main, 1 for Display 2), but the display used does not change, and nor does the system-level file.

    Hi Lindsey,

    (I split this in to its own discussion.)

    Since it sounds like the preferences mechanism is working correctly, we need to start considering other possible causes. Some questions:

    1. Are you seeing this issue on multiple Mac's or just one?
    2. Have you made any recent changes to the system(s) where you've observed this problem? Did you, for example
      • install a new version of MWorks?
      • upgrade to a newer version of macOS?
      • replace or reconnect either of the displays?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Hi Chris,
    This issue was just on a single Mac.
    It followed an upgrade from High Sierra to Catalina. We did not install a
    new version of Mworks (though we later tried reinstalling to see if it
    would help- it didn't) or replace/reconnect the displays (I'm not sure if
    this was ever tried).
    Lindsey.

    OK, that's useful info. What version of MWorks are you using on that machine?

    MWorks was 0.10 (a nightly). Same as on the other computers.
