No playback to external monitor Premiere CC

October 11Hits:1
Advertisement
Hello all ~
Mid-job (and of course now that I need to color correct), PP CC has stopped exporting video to my external monitor.  I have tried trashing prefs (holding Shift+Opt at start-up) and it doesn't do the trick.  In looking around, I've noticed people having this problem when using some BlackMagic cards, but my monitor is plugged directly into the Thunderbolt connector of my MacBook Pro. I've enclosed my Playback settings. 
Oddly enough, when I fire up my old copy of PP CS6 it plays back to my external monitor just fine.
I've had had enough late-night edits that I may have inadvertently initiated some keystroke that changed a setting, but I can't think of what that would be or why a Preference Trash wouldn't reset it.   Any help greatly appreciated.  Thanks much.

Well, after much poking and prodding I found out what happened and how to fix it.  If you look at the picture below, you can see that there is a row of razor-thin pixels pushing into my external monitor.  So basically what happened was that I resized the window and thought that I had dragged it completely onto my main monitor, but my Program Monitor and Timeline were still ever-so-slightly overlapping onto my external monitor.  When I moved them fully onto my main monitor, the video on my external monitor reappeared.
HOWEVER ( ! ), this does beg the question of why this problem remained as I did reset my editing workspace, I did trash preferences and I did do a complete uninstall/reinstall of PP CC... and still had the same problem.  Shouldn't  any one of those processes have put things back to where they were supposed to be? Where are these residual settings being stored, and how can you get rid of them if even a complete reinstall won't do the trick? 
Would have saved a lot of time if they had worked as advertised.  Happy to be up and running (and color correcting) though and hope this can help others who might be having the same problem.
