13" 2010 MBP external display problem
Alright, so this is my second post since I have joined.
I have a 13" 2010 MBP with a mini display port- NOT a thunder whatever-
I purchased Steven Slate Drums Platinum to run on this. Not reading the fine print... I needed a minimum screen resolution of 1280X1024 to run SSD4.
My MBP has a MAX of 1280X800-
SO- I purchased a train of external gear-
1. a 17" apple studio monitor with a MAX reso of the 1280X1024 I needed.
2. the rare and expensive DVI to ADC Adapter.
3. a Mini port to DVI Adapter.
I have strewn all 3 together and I can see the pointer when I drag the mouse(finger) off of my MBP screen in the direction to where I have placed the 17" monitor in my display settings.
HOWEVER- I then open up Garageband where my SSD4 will run from and I can get the GB to fill or "maximize" the screen reso on the new 17"- but like before, when I try and open the sub folder of my SSD4 in GB, the SSD4 screen still remains unable to fully open to its maximum size!?!
So- I don't know if I am having a "settings" issue- OR, AND HOPEFULLY NOT THIS- but I think this might be the problem-
because the SSD4 software is in fact installed on my 13"MBP- and that seems to be the brain where things originally open...
That just because I HAVE an external monitor with the correct resolution, it will still open up the same way it did because like I said the program is installed ON MY 13" MBP?
Am I correct? oh please oh please oh please- I hope NOT-
ahh well, what are you going to do-
I hope someone with some major obi-wan skills might be able to offer some help possibly regarding this lousy sitch Im in- Im just not that smart when it comes to issues like these. I apologize.
So thank you in advance*

If you have both the Macbook Pro and the external display running, you can open system preferences and go to the display setting and the arrangement tab. Position the displays the way you have them set up as far as left and right. You can grab the top white bar from the Macbook Pro display image and drag it to the other screen and that will make the external screen the primary and then when you open the application, it should see the external screen resolution and open since it is high enough. Make sure the mirror display image is unchecked.

If that does not work, you are in troubles!
