I'm working on a MacBook Pro, with my external monitor arranged on a higher shelf, and "arranged" within my display preferences as being "above" my MBP display. I use the larger monitor when I'm coding, using the terminal, etc., and the MBP display for browsing, IM, and other things.
My problem is this: some apps won't let me drag them to beyond the menu bar on the MBP display. If I arrange the displays in a horizontal configuration, or with the MBP display "above" the external monitor, I can drag the windows wherever I want. An example of some apps that do this are Sublime Text 2 and XCode.
Is there some trick to getting this to work that I'm missing?
