Hello all.


I've spent quite a bit of time with bbZero and all in all its impressive and I love it, although that's a post for another time.


One issue that I can't seem to resolve, is getting all windows in the active workspace to display on a BlackBoxBar instance on a single monitor (I use two).


I can turn 'Current' option off for BlackBoxBar which will display all windows on one bar, but this also includes all the other windows on different workspaces which is not good. Keeping the option on, I can't see which windows are displayed on my second monitor because it will only show Monitor 1's windows.


Is there a solution where I can have both? All current windows, but restricted by workspace?


I did follow this solution:

http://blackbox4wind...+dual +monitors


Where it was recommended to duplicate the BlackBoxBar plugin, have one on each monitor with 'current' enabled. This does work and I will keep it like this now.


It would be nice to remove that second bar because I can't clean it up, i.e. remove system tray without it disappearing from my first plugin instance.


Thanks guys,
