I have a 15 inch tft connected with my macbook pro, but the problem is that although in height the screen is taller than the laptops screen, in the screen preferences the height is smaller. If i can move the mouse pointer from one screen to the other on a straight line at the bottom of he screen, when the pointer switches from one screen to the other from the top of the screen, it appears higher than what it should be. Is there any way I can change how the dimensions of the second screen are set in the display preferences?

    Hi Mythos,

    Not quite sure if I really understand the problem, and the link you gave didn't work for me (Aberdeen U wants me to report that page).
    You might try in Preferences/Displays/Arrangement to play and drag around the screen. You can push it up or down, left or right, or even transfer the menu bar from your main screen to the other one and work from there. Good luck, hope this helps.

    Mythos,

    I'm sorry, I can't explain that behavior. Perhaps it's perfectly normal. Best bet I think would be to post here: http://discussions.apple.com/category.jspa?categoryID=190
    Good luck.

    No apologies necessary.

    Actually you're in the Leopard forum which deals with Leopard as software, so devices wouldn't quite be applicable. But hopefully I pointed you to the Macbook forum because that's what your issue involves. (I checked the link, I get the Macbook forum). Someone there should be more knowledgeable about what you describe. Good luck!
