    Jun 05 2008 | 2:03 pm
    I'am using a Macbook Pro whith a second Display. Is it possible to have a patch in fullscreen mode on the second display only? Is it a mac OS problem or do I miss something? Can anyone help please...
    thanks, ole

      If the jit.window will go into full screen on which ever monitor it is currently residing on. You can drag it to the monitor you wish, or I often set it up like this [jit.window @pos 1700 100 @fullscreen 1] so that the window gets moved and put into fullscreen when the patch loads. Just use whatever @pos values you need to move the window to your second display.

      thanks, good to know, but what is about a plain max/msp-patch?

      move your patcher to the second screen
      and turn on this:

      this is exactly what is not working- when I turn on the fullscreen mode on in the patcher (which I had moved to the second display) it opens in the main display (having the Mac menu strip in the main display)...

      this has been mentioned a few times now. it's a bug. it will be fixed. for now just use the rect message to jit.window, and look at jit.display for help with this.
