10.7.7 appears to have introduced an issue where the remote display no longer scales to full screen and is also only displayed on a single display when multiple displays are used.

Yup I got the exact same issue as soon as I updated.  Very annoying.

I left this comment on another post about the same thing , which is exactly the same as the issue that happened with 10.7.4.

 

Annoyingly, I now can't even find a working version by trying to roll back to any other version on aka.ms/rdmacbeta. Not sure if it's because I still have the broken 10.7.7 (2000) version installed (but not running), or some preference file somewhere, or what.

 

The best I can get is to turn off multi-monitor support and choose "update the session resolution on resize" which at least gives one usable screen. But it's not conducive to being able to do my work usefully, and it's incredibly frustrating.

 

I think I need to never update this app in future, because the updates can't be relied upon even by the time they get into the App Store, and it breaks my ability to do my job for a week each time.

Thanks @Emma Bailey. I was resorting to the update resolution workaround till I saw your tip on rolling back the version. Now working in full dual screen glory.

The fix is available on the latest beta client version 10.7.9 (build 2011). You can get it from aka.ms/rdmacbeta
