    The main reason I was looking forward to Mavericks was promised better integration with multiple monitors.

    However, it appears you can't have BOTH windows that span two monitors (the default behavior in ML) AND menu bars over every monitor.

    Does anyone know a way around this?

    just curious, why do you need to have a window that spans two monitors??

    its very nice if you have two of the same monitors, really cool experience to have a huge screen for Final Cut Pro or Photoshop.

    I tried it, and indeed, it's either one or the other.

    When the option "Displays have different spaces" is on, you have two menu bars but windows will not show across displays.

    When that option is off, you have only one menu bar but windows can be embiggened across displays. No way around it, as far as I can see.
