Fix for Adobe After Effects Dual Monitor Right Click & Drop Down Bug in macOS High Sierra
Just a quick tip, and only for a minute.
We just did the whole upgrade in the studio since we had a few days of downtime right before Thanksgiving holiday. Upgraded to High Sierra, as well as any of the Adobe suite that was out of date. Quickly fired it up and checked a few plugins, opened a few projects, and all seemed well.
Then this week we came in to an absolute nightmare. Apparently everyone in the building could not right click on any items in the secondary monitor OR open any dropdown menus. I didn’t even believe the first guy to point it out.
Go to your Mac’s System Preferences > Mission Control
Once in there, make sure to uncheck Displays have separate Spaces
Badabing, badaboom now you’re all set until the update rolls out. Apparently Adobe is working on a fix and I’d say this is more of a High Sierra problem but it’s an easy fix for now unless you’re some weirdo who obsessed with spaces.
