Lost ability to move tool panels...

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I've been trying out Duet Display with Affinity apps for a bit and have ran into a weird issue that I can't seem to get around. When I move some of the panels (layers, for instance) from the external display (iPad Pro) to my main display (Macbook Pro) I lose the ability to access the top bar of said panels which you require to drag them around. I assume this is because the 2 displays are set to different resolutions therefore the layers panel appears a bit bigger when I move it and cuts the top of the panel from view.


I've tried Window > Clean Up Floating Windows and it doesn't seem to do a thing. Any advice? Kind of stuck with panels in my way at the moment which means my work day has effectively stopped. Which is good and bad.


I've attached a screenshot.

Duet seems to be set at 1366 x 1024. Higher resolutions are 1536 x 1152 and 2048 x 1536.

Which iPad Pro do you have? According to this article, the 2048 x 1536 resolution should be the right one for the original 9.7" model, but both the newer 10.5 inch & the 12.9 inch models have higher resolutions than that.
