I'll look into it. Thanks.

There will always be the option to show and fill the bar on both
screens. It'll be able to be turned off on any or all screens.

No, that's not an option. If you want that, you'll have to write
a (rather simple) script to do it. As I've said, you'll be able
to show whichever screens on whichever monitor you want, so
clients won't even be lost.

For a long time it puzzled me how something so expensive, so leading
edge, could be so useless, and then it occurred to me that a computer
is a stupid machine with the ability to do incredibly smart things,
while computer programmers are smart people with the ability to do
incredibly stupid things.  They are, in short, a perfect match.
