I have 2 monitors - the main monitor is on the left and the second monitor is on the right. I can scroll around the map by moving the mouse to the left, top, and bottom edges of the map, but it will not scroll to the right. To scroll to the right I have to use the cursor keys.

I have the same kind of setup and the edge scroll is working fine for me even on the side that's adjacent to my second monitor. Have you maximized the game window?

I have, and it made no difference. However, I have tried again and find that if I put the cursor exactly on the right edge (not even 1 mm away - it has to be exactly on the right edge) then it will scroll to the right. It seems to me that the tolerance is too tight. It would be more user-friendly to have the map start to scroll as soon as you come within, say, 5mm of the map edge. If I have to try and get the mouse on the exact edge each time I won't bother because it is faster to just use the cursor keys. This is obviously only a problem for users with multiple monitors, because on a single monitor you can just move the cursor further in the direction you wish to go. You can't do that on a multi-monitor setup because the cursor leaves the game and ends up on the other screen.

The tolerance is much more generous on my system. I'm not sure why, but I'll bring this up with the dev team to inquire.
