Fusion 360 - Multiple Desktops Running on a Mac

I wanted to add on to this thread as it's a very similar issue I'm experiencing since the latest update... when using multiple desktops on Mac, Fusion 360 shows the Browser, Comments, and bottom bar UI elements in Desktop 1 even though Fusion is actually in Desktop 2. I made a video to highlight the problem. I've uninstalled/reinstalled, reset to default layout...all the same.

Hi @seankovacs 

I checked with the Fusion 360 team and they suggested NOT using multiple desktops on Mac. This is logged and the team is aware of this request.

With Fusion 360 you can open up multiple files in the same session and switch between the tabs. Does this work for you?  

Thanks,

-Dan

I have the same issue and it drives me nuts! I use one desktop to view client drawings, DWG files and PDFs related to the project. It's very handy to sweep between desktops to reference when I'm modelling. It seems to be stable for a while then starts to split out the browser onto one of the other desktops or the browser takes to hiding itself. Sometimes this is after the computer has been in sleep mode. It's been like this for maybe 6 to 8 months through various updates.

I got the same problem and it is totally annoying making productive work with fusion almost impossible unless you don't switch screen. Not using multiple Screens is NOT AN OPTION at all. Smashing my 12 Desktops/Screens onto a single one is close to impossible. In addition screens are not a new feature on Mac and fusion360 was able to handle this perfectly in the past. I hope this gets fixed soon.

Hi @timpreston & @Spirou42 

Thanks for posting your thoughts about running multiple desktops on Mac. This forum is for Educators using Fusion in the classroom. I'd suggest posting your concerns about Mac desktops to the Fusion 360 Support forum. The team that manages the Support forum may have more insights.

I am sorry, i was not aware of that.
I have searched for a solution of my problem (disappearing overlay windows on Mac) and this thread came up.
