    so I have a weird setup in my loft here at school. I have 2 displays hooked up to my mac pro. one that is pictured below, and one that is run up to my bed which is on top of the desk (can't see monitor from my desk chair).

    whenever i open a PDF in "preview.app" or a picture in preview it displays it on that other monitor. I have spaces disabled so it has nothing to do with that. Any other way to tell preview I want it to open on my main screen?

    the only way I have to fix it is to temporarily mirror the monitors, drag the pdf to the bottom of the screen and then unmirror them and it shows up on my ACD.

    Any tips? I'm stumped :dunno:
