Two-screen weirdness
« on: April 23, 2014, 03:53:35 AM »

I'm running LR5.4 under Mavericks on an iMac with an external monitor. The main screen is the iMac's. I have LR's grid view on the second screen.

Frequently, and for no apparent reason, a floating window appears on the main screen, containing a grid of thumbnails. If I close it, the thumbnail view disappears from the secondary screen also. I can restore it easily enough by hitting shift-G, but it's irritating.

Has anyone else seen this? Is there a solution?

I've seen this, albeit rarely.  I'm pretty certain it's an OS X bug that was introduced by a recent patch—10.9.2, I think.  (Which Apple eventually will fix but probably never publicly document, alas.)

there seem to be several dual display issues that showed up in 10.9.2.  Could be related.  Many report inability to mirror (one monitor goes black) and other strange things.  Rumor is 10.9.3, due to hit any day, resolves them.

And if you have the desire (and want to be on the near bleeding edge), you can try it yourself now, as 10.9.3 is now a public beta.
