This looks like a sticky bug :) Yes.
I tried a few stuff around, but couldnt get any easy workaround.
Finally, i thought, i would keep the A.M. Panel floating :).
I guess that this panel is doing some adjustments when reopening and there is some issue here.
That said, I would like to ask as how do you use the second screen. Its a interesting setup that you are getting into. I would typically use the second screen to display my Monitor window only.
True, keeping the A.Mixer afloat is an option...
As for my screen setup: I can't find a way to tell PE on what monitor to play clips in Full Screen mode. It just pops up on the primary screen (the one the OS starts up from). Also, you seemingly cannot float the Tasks panel.
I always want to have the Timeline (My Project) in view, so that goes (at full width and 2/3 of the height) to the bottom part of the other screen. Above that, not enough room is left for Tasks/Properties (the 2nd most important panel in my view).
So I leave the Tasks panel as large as possible on the primary screen (at full height and 2/3 of the width). Wonderful for adjusting and finetuning keyframes. In the remaining space Info, History, Audio Meter and Events-panels all just fit.
Finally in the remaining top third part of the secondary screen I put the Monitor (at a size approx. as large as it would be in a regular one-screen setup) and - at least that's what I intended - next to it the Audio Mixer.
That way I either can see a smaller Monitor and all other panels together, or Full Screen combined with the TimeLine plus Audio Mixer.
Quite a story again. Eventually, next to the two computer screens will come a third screen for play back: a TV, connected either through the TV-out port of my videocard (I still need to sort out if and how this works) or through the camcorder. That way, I will not need the Full Screen mode of PE.
