  • "Hi all. I am running a 4-monitor setup at work on 10.8.2 on a Mac Pro with 2 Radeon 5770 video cards (2 monitors into each card). Since updating to Mountain Lion, I am having an issue where items dragged-and-dropped from applications to the desktop don't drop where I let go of the mouse. Instead, they drop into that same position on the next monitor. So, if I drop an email attachment out of Outlook onto the center of my main monitor, it will actually drop onto the center of the 2nd screen. If I drop onto the 4th screen, it ends up on the 1st screen." MacInTouch 12/21
