Context menu opens on wrong monitor in dual-monitor setup

    Hi,

    Using two monitors -- main on right; secondary on left. When I click a
    context menu in Dreamweaver on a panel that is on the secondary monitor, the
    menu opens all the way on the right side of the right hand monitor. I have
    tried everything I can think of, and the problem persists.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thank you.

    does this happen with any other software?

    Bob,

    I should have mentioned that. No, it does not. In fact, I use a very
    similar layout for Photoshop and the flyout context menus work as predicted
    there. Dreamweaver and Photoshop are both part of the CS4 suite, so they
    should work exactly the same way in the same environment, but they don't for
    me.

    I have posted a couple of messages on the Adobe Dreamweaver forum and
    received no replies.

    Any ideas? This one has me stumped!

    Dreamweaver even has a preset screen layout called Dual Screen in which it
    places all the panels on the second monitor. The problem still occurs, and
    it's with all panels no matter where on the second monitor they are placed.

    I'd say there is a bug in Dreamweaver.
