If I play DW:ROTS on my secondary monitor in a Window something strange happens:

Clicking on stacked group of ships - the ship selection window pops up on my primary monitor -> outside of the DW window...

Distant Worlds is not supported on multiple monitors.

We'll take a look at this issue at some point (windowed mode on multiple monitors). But for now please put your DW window on your primary monitor.

Steam collect data from time to time - and apparently multiple monitors is one of the fastest growing trends in PC gaming with 7% of users now having 2 or more monitors apparently.

Looking at it - it looks like it will peak at about 25% max.
Not massive - and not a problem - just a consideration.

I'm a multiple monitor player as well. I always disable the secondary monitor now before playing DW using a great little app called UntraMon. Useful for all sorts of single-monitor games. :)
