    Hi All,

    Hoping someone can help me out here.
    I am at home on an imac using Lion 10.7 with dual monitors set up, I'ma connecting via the screen sharing app to my works computer also dual monitor setup (Power Mac - Leopard 10.6)

    What I would like to know is;
    Is it possible to go into full screen mode at home and have my dual monitors display the same way that I have at work? (let's leave the screen resolution differences alone for now) Because when I go into full screen mode (ie the little arrow top right hand corner) I can only use screen sharing on one monitor (my main one) this leaves my dragging across the screen to scroll to my other monitor or using the 'select one display' at a time option.

    Thanks mcrawley, interesting thread link, it mostly talks about apps that go full screen and then comments are made about moving your palettes to the extra window to allow both screens to work as dual screen displays.

    The Screen Sharing app (in my case) has to be a two screen app, it can't be confined to one screen as its representing my dual screens at work. So it's a slightly different scenario but I guess if they can't get an app to go full screen properly then there's not much hope for this screen sharing app. to either.

    mcrawley I think you understand but for future readers;
    With full screen apps you have the ability to move palettes to the extra screen for more real estate, but in the case of screen sharing, it's effectively only a ONE 'palette/screen' app therefore you can't move it or extend it, your confined to one screen.
