    Ironically, I liked the original version of Full Screen mode with Multiple Monitors. Now I can't use multiple desktops to page multiple full screen multiple instances.

    With new update of PD7 Build 14922 you can use both Lion full screen and legacy full screen which is more convenient when working with multiple displays. You can switch full screen mode in VM config->Options->Full Screen.

    I just finished the update, I didn't see an exact selection for Lion and Legacy. Trial and error found that deselecting the "Use Mac OSX Full screen" under the full screen option config did the trick, if I may recommend renaming this option's lable to "Use Mac OSX Lion Full Screen" with a little help-tip below to mention to leave unchecked to use legacy full screen, that might be nice for new upgraders.

    Kudos Parallels for the quick fix on full screen/multiple monitors complaint. Great product, and great customer service. Thanks.

    My bad. Somehow I redownloaded and installed 6 instead of the new 7. Everything is great.

    P7 (Mac, Desktop)= Very poor performance.

    I posted this in the Guest Windows virtual machine forum/threads. All I can say, is I've had major headaches with P7 ... crashing being the worst problem, poor performance on both sides (MacOSX and Win7), it worked just fine w/P6. Spent quite a bit of time this morning on two occassions/tech support. Followed all the steps given to fix the problem, .... sure didn't work, in fact, its worse! The last tech person said they were escalating the problem....still haven't heard back.

    I am very disatisfied with P7, I regret upgrading. Until this version, I was satisfied with both P5 and 6, everything was working.

    Frankly, I'd like the money back I paid for this upgrade.
