Select which monitors will use an RDP connection
In a multi-monitor setup with three or more monitors, configure an RDP session to assign one or more desktops for remote display, instead of an all-or-one monitor assignment.

I have 3 monitors and used to be able to select which monitors I wanted to view (by selecting the F3 button on my keyboard), usually 2 out of the 3. Now, it only appears on one monitor which has a negative impact on productivity. Please bring that feature back.

I've got 3 monitors and want to only have remote desktop windows display on two of the three. And let me pick which two get used.
Lately it has been hard to predict which of my three monitors the RDP session is going to display the RDP session. If I recall correctly, it used to always open on the monitor that held the connection center when the session was double clicked.
Now, who knows?
It would be great if it were directable, maybe a default setting or if right clicking it could ask “open on which monitor?”.
I have three monitors, two of which are for development works with Visual Studio and the other one is for mailing, skype, schedule checks and all the office works fit to a non-RDP environment.
This feature will realize truly parallel computing with Mac and Windows. It'd be very nice to have a multi-monitor experience with Mac and one with Windows simultaneously.
Multi monitor support is needed. Without it, beta is a backward step.
This - although right now I can't get dual monitors to work even.
Without multiple monitor support, this app is just a toy (i.e., not useful for those of us who actually have more business-related workflows: connecting to multiple systems, having Xterms up, multiple mail programs, etc.) because this darn thing insists on being the only app you can interact with.

This is by far my #1 desired feature! Also related would be choosing which monitor, once connected, is "primary"
Yes, the all our nothing option is a pain for those that actually have a number of monitors. If I have 3 or 4 and want to use two for the RDP session, that would be wonderful.

There used to be an option, "displays have separate spaces." Now it's grayed out. For some reason, turning that off used to make things work for me on a two-monitor set-up, when I only wanted one to be the RDP.
