    Hey there, my mother just got a Wacom Cintiq tablet, which is an LCD drawing tablet that you draw directly on. It shows up when connected as a secondary display (non-mirrored). She's an illustrator and has a 24" iMac.

    I got it all hooked up, but I'm wondering if there's a way to tell a program to open on that screen, like photoshop, or illustrator, etc...

    It should re-open whenever you left it, just as it re-opens in the same spot on your main monitor. The one exception is when the external monitor is removed, which tends to bugger things up a bit.

    I don't know if Photoshop et al. behave like that, though. I would think so, since their target audience is the creative professional that is quite likely to have a multiple monitor setup.

    yes, that is the case, but I was just wondering if there's a way to actually set it. Oh well.
