inadequate virtual desktops
Authored by: plaguebearer on Sep 30, '03 05:12:32AM

None of these Virtual desktop products fix issues I've run into.

Issue 1) Quit Photoshop running on a system when the layer effects window was last opened on a second monitor. Remove the second monitor and move the system to another location where no second monitor is available. Launch photoshop. When I try to use a layer effect. The pallet opens off screen. Photoshop's 'arrange windows' command doesn't move it onto the desktop. the only way to get it back is to dump the photoshop prefs. (a real Pi$$er if you have lots of customizations)

Issue 2) On a Lime iBook with 800X600 Max Resolution. Launch an app that requires a resolution above 800X600 (Such as Eric's Ultimate Solitaire) Any functions and controls that run off the bottom of the screen are completely unusable. And there is no way to move the window to temporarily reach the controls.

Some way to synthesize a higher resolution would be handy. Anyone got any ideas?
