    I need to know the same.... I paid for this app.  Silence from the developers only end up in bad reviews

    Jump currently doesn't showing one monitor at time. That said - we added a mouse panning feature in 2.5 that helps navigate big desktops from a small machine.

    Try this:

    1. You can zoom into the desktop by going into View -> Zoom In.

    2. As you zoom in you'll notice the mouse pointer automatically starts panning the screen. Further more, you can choose the type of panning you want to happen by choosing in Jump's preferences: Click Jump Desktop -> Preferences -> Panning. There are currently 3 panning options:

    I hope this helps. We'll look into adding single monitor selection support in a future release, though I can't promise when.

    When we were trying to fix the problem in 2.5 we felt the panning solution was a better solution (vs monitor selection) because you don't have to keep switching between monitors this way. With mouse panning, Jump takes care of the panning for you when you're zoomed in - it's a more general and complete solution from our perspective.

    That said - we'd love to hear your feedback.

    I use the screen sharing feature all the time on the Mac. We have computers that have three monitors hooked up to them. 1 is desktop and 2 and 3 are outputs for projectors. I only need to see the first one. If you were able to put a drop down on the top bar that allows you to select all or each individual monitor this would be just awesome!

    This is a vote for strongly in favour of being able to choose displays, that is one of the nice features of default MacOs Screen Sharing. I have three 27" iMacs and all of them have a second 1920x1080 display. Viewing remotely on a Macbook Air, even with panning, is a real pain. Please consider adding this feature - it would be (as Todd says) just awesome.

    I feel dumb raising the issue, but I cannot find the Preferences window shown above. Is this on my desktop or my ipad? (I cannot find it on either machine.)  Thanks for your help.

    Mark,

    In the menu bar on the top left hand corner click: 'Jump Desktop' -> Preferences.

    I have a laptop with an extended monitor attached. On the laptop is my karaoke control panel and on the extended monitor is only the lyrics screen.
       I am wirelessly controlling the laptop with my Ipad 4th generation, using the Jump Desktop app.
       The problem is, when I scroll to the right on my Ipad I can see my secondary monitor.  I only want to see my control panel not the secondary monitor.

       I can't find the above pictured "preference panel" in jumpdesktop. Is it on ipad or PC?
       Is there a way to lock horizontal scrolling in an Ipad?

    I'm seconding Mark Lusk's question. I do not see "JumpDesktop" on the left of my main monitor. The only preferences I see is when I click on the Jump icon by the clock.

    Running on OSX Mav.

    Ok, this is a re-iteration of this issue.  One _must_ be able to choose the view.  You've had more than enough time to solve this problem.  Times up.  Fix it please.  We must have the ability to chose monitors.

    Just want to add here: We've added the ability to select monitors when connecting to Macs in Jump Desktop for Mac 5.0. Will be added for iOS soon too.

    Rick - to choose monitors on Jump Desktop for Mac connect to your remote and then click Remote -> Displays and select the monitor you want.
