Enterprise Architect secondary popup windows open off of visible desktop

Hello --

Mac OSX 10.11.15
CrossOver 15.1
EnterpriseArchitect 12.1

In many cases when EA opens up a property window or some other secondary popup the secondary window is opened off of the visible desktop. Using MissionControl I can see the secondary window displayed to the far opposite side of the desktop, but it appears that CrossOver thinks the desktop extends horizontally much further than actually fits on the screen.

With much juggling of the EA application across desktops I can eventually coerce EA to open the secondary popup window within sight, but a only for that particular window. The next incursion into a popupo window situation with EA generally results in the same unreachable window state.

I'm not sure where the issues lies: whether it be with CrossOver thinking the desktop display is in some other resolution or the dimensions of the desktop are not being interpreted correctly, etc. I don't run any other application under CrossOver so I really have nothing else to guage its behaviour with. I don't recall this being an issue with prior versions of CrossOver + EnterpriseArchitect.

If there are any ideas as to how I might redefine the desktop dimensions to CrossOver such that running EA under it's guise restrict themselves to just the desktop and not some invisible portion of the desktop that I cannot reach, that'd be great.

Questions/comments welcome. Thanks.

In System Preferences under the Mission Control panel try checking Group windows by application and then all the windows created by Crossover should appear in the same window.

Thanks for the response! Although this settting was already in place, what I have been able to do is unset the 'Displays have separate Spaces' setting also on the Mission Control panel. EA under CrossOver now opens secondary popup windows within view, but of course now I only have a single space across my displays which is not desirable, but tolerable.

Thanks again, and thank you for CrossOver. It takes many of the complexities of wine and packages them up quite nicely!
