I use Eclipse with two monitors and several detached views. This is very useful so you can watch the console output on a seperated screen.

My problem occurs if I switch to one monitor. The console view appears in the middle of nowhere, probably where the second monitor was. I cannot move the view, and restarting Eclipse does nothing.

Does anyone have a simple approach to move the views back without resetting the perspective?


The only way I can find is to create a separate perspective for using with a single monitor. Then you can switch between a single-monitor and multi-monitor perspectives as needed.


You can try use old eclipse version: 3.7.2 indigo-SR2. I don't see this issue on 3.7.2. After switching off second monitor, it views don't appears on first monitor.
