Auto Hide with Dual Display

Hello,

recently I got a second display for my laptop and run in a few issues with Winamp.

My setup:
The big display is the 2711 made by Dell,
the laptop is the Lenovo S430 running W7 x64
and my taskbar is on the top.

The Dell is selected as my primary display and the Lenovo display is in the setting options below the Dell (they are set as extended in the projector settings). To clarify if I move with my mouse to the bottom edge of the Dell it'll move further on to the Lenovo.

I want that Winamp is on the Lenovo and auto hides to the bottom with and without the second monitor.


The issues:
If I select that Winamp shall auto hide to the bottom - without the Dell being connected, it works flawlessly. As soon as I try to do the same with the Dell being connected, Winamp will move to the top of the Lenovo (as hidden state) and will unhide into the Dell.
That doesn't happen for example if I move the Lenovo display to the right hand-side or left hand-side – thats not a solution.
The second issue is, that since Winamp is displayed (without auto hide enabled) - while the Dell is plugged in on the Lenovo it will start off-screen if I start it without the Dell.

I really hope you'll be able to fix that fast.


Thank you,

Sonrfes

Did I forget to mention something or is it normal that there is no reply?

it's basically normal to not get a response (that doesn't mean it's not been read and noted, it's just not everything gets a reply). what you're showing in the screenshots is expected as the docking handling was never setup to nicely deal with vertical stacking of monitors as horizontal stacking is the norm.

I guess I have to hope that somehow this bug will be fixed soon.

Sincerely,

Auto Hide with Dual Display

a few of the auto game are still having this issue... I had to drop three games because they have not started up within 24 hours.

EDIT: They have been removed so, yeah, guess its fixed now _
