    Hi m I am not sure if I have understood your question. But maybe try system preferences under Monitor and use mirroring/extending monitors. Hope this helps somehow. Regards, Hisham

    sorry if i wasnt clear enough... so... i want my viewer window to fit my cinema display not my lg flatron...but when i set it to dual screen it sets the size of the viewer to the lg monitor size (which is smaller and not calibrated) and i cannot resize it to fit my cinema display,also the size of the COMPOSER is to big for the lg flatron monitor and i cannot resize it to fit the lg size. m.

    Hi MD, rather than physically switching your display cables, you could also try and play around with the display preferences in system preferences. You can mirror desktops here or assign them to monitor 1 and 2... and whichever monitor that has the white menu bar thing is your master monitor that houses your dock and desktop. if you want to change which monitor houses the dock, drag the white menu bar to the respective monitor. Doesn't help change Color's preferences but it saves you having to get on your knees and recable things!
