hi i was using object dock free  but i do have the pro version  but  using 2 monitors  when i enable  the secondary monitor   with  ultramon  it acts funny like missing pieces of desktop background   but if i log off then back on it fixes it   so i  un-installed objectdock  and installed rocket dock and no problems    by  the way im using   windows  7  64  bit    just wondering if theres a way to fix this   thanks

I know this may not help. But I use 3 monitors with Display Fusion and Object Dock Plus with no problems. Ultramon is good, maybe try DisplayFusion?

yeah ive tried display fusion works good  but no easy way of enabling or disabling the second monitor   maybe with setting a profile  but i havent tried  seems way over complicated for such a  simple   task   that ultra mon does so easy in its right click  menu    thanks for replying   

but  i will probably just stick with rocket dock

Sure there is. Right click the systray icon, choose Monitor Configuration.

I have Win 7 64 and two monitors, absolutely no problems. The only thing I have problems with are two DesktopX Widgets (this is a problem with their creation) that hide when I shut down my main monitor for a while. Object dock is not a problem. I took off Fusion and Ultramon as they were not worth the hassle. Everything works as advertised, why mess with it?

yeah it only happens when i enable the second monitor   objectdock acts weird  but i log off then back on and that fixes it   i dont run the second monitor until i have to

What I find annoying is this:

 

If I load OD and then click in an adjacent monitor before OD is fully loaded, some of the docks end up in that clicked monitor. Rather than where I want them.

yeah i found a solution i re-installed objectdock  and also  actual multiple  monitors      http://www.actualtools.com/multiplemonitors/
