Sorry 'bout the run-on appearance, above. For some reason, the line breaks didn't hold between paragraphs.

I didn't shut down Keynote while in System Prefs > Displays (not sure why that would make a difference...?).
With Keynote running in the background, the two displays appeared the same size, layered on top of one another, as if Mirroring was selected (it wasn't). I thought it odd that their icons were identical, since I'm accustomed to seeing the image you posted above---one display being the primary, one being the secondary.

Two displays on top of each other indicate that mirroring is switched on, whether the mirror tick box is checked or not. This often happens when a new display or projector is connected for the first time.
Move the top most display to the right hand side, as in my screen shot earlier.

Gary, to "move the top most display to the right hand side," do I simply drag and drop? My impression was that drag and drop didn't work in System Pref panels. Admittedly, haven't tried it...but only because it didn't appear to be an option.
My nerves are a bit on edge, since the next client projector connection is less than 48 hours away (out of state, so there's no way to test this until I get to the conference location an hour or so before the event begins).

You have the ability to move the second display up down left or right and move the menu bar
Moving the second display to the right for righthanded english speaking users is the natural prefered choice

Thanks, Gary--I'll give this a shot if the mirroring-that's-not-selected kicks in on the projector tomorrow. Fingers are crossed....it's never fun to find a hiccup where you didn't expect one when an audience is waiting.
