Description astor 2005-10-11 12:48:21 UTC
The menu-system used by OOo will display popup menus that cross two physical
screen in a multi-screen display.  This is incorrect behaviour.

To reproduce:
1. In a two-screen multi-screen display with one screen to the left of the other
screen, maximize OOo on the left screen. Then arrange the toolbars so that you
have a toolbar menu at the very right end of your screen.   When you open the
toolbar menu, the popup menu will appear partly on your right screen instead of
on your left screen.

I see the same problem with Matrox card G450 and its driver, on Win XP SP2.
Also happens with tooltips.
Problem already exists on 1.1.4.

Replicated issue in OOo 3.1 [OOO310m19 (Build 9420)] on Windows Vista SP 1.  

Graphics Card: Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family 
Monitor 1: Generic PnP Monitor
Monitor 2: CTX LCD Monitor PV720A

Steps to reproduce:
1.) Open Writer which opens on Monitor 1
2.) Move application to Monitor 2
3.) Select Edit -> Find & Replace..

The Find & Replace pop-up box displays on Monitor 1.

This can cause a lot of issues when working and the pop-up box cannot be found.
