I've got two monitors, with iOS simulator is on a secondary monitor. Xcode is full-screen on a primary monitor (iMac). Whenever I rotate simulator on a secondary display, primary display goes off the full-screen to "Desktop 1". Doesn't matter whether I use shortcuts (⌘ Cmd+ or ⌘ Cmd + ) or menu items without keyboard.

At first I thought that may be it conflicts with "switch space" shortcut, so I changed rotation shortcuts to ⌘ Cmd+⇧ Shift+/, still same annoying behaviour.

Any ideas how this can be fixed, so full-screen space on primary monitor doesn't change on simulator rotation?


You can try (deleting or renaming) the \Library\Application Support\iPhone Simulator folder entirely from this location and run the simulator from XCode.

Hope this helps.
