I have researched this issue on all the forums and Google but did not find a solution. My last resort is here and hopefully i get an answer. This is the first time i have encountered this problem with motion 5. I use motion 5 regulary on Mac OSX 10.8 on a Mac pro. I have a three monitor setup, two monitors are connected directly via DVI to HDMI to the mac, and one is connected via USB. I usually have the time pane and project pane on one monitor and Canvas on the other. Today without doing anything when i lauched motion 5, the canvas is not showing. This is very frustrating, the option "show canvas in second display" is also grayed out. After trying everything i knew ( quitting motion, restarting computer 5 times, trashing preference files, uninstall/reinstall motion, disconnecting monitors and using just one) i give up and came here. I am not sure what i am doing wrong, and this is the first time this is happening. I have the latest version installed and everything is up to date. Please help if anyone encountered this issue and fixed it. Thanks in advance for any help. I have a big project i need to finish.

Mac Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), Dual Intel Xeon 6 GB Ram
