Resolutions not saving when closing VM/signing out

    I have my settings set to use the best resolution for external displays, and only use full screen mode. I have selected the 'VM config > Options > Full Screen > Advanced > Scale to fit screen: Keep ratio' option but all of my monitors get set back to the default resolution every time I load the VM. I have the change the resolution manually every time. How do I stop this from happening?

    Also, when in full screen mode and giving each display separate spaces, when my macBook screen is displaying a macOS application, whenever I click on any application running in my VM (Windows) on my external monitor, the application on my macBook screen automatically switches to the VM full screen space. How do I turn this off? I want to be able to use Windows & macOS alongside each other on separate screens (without using Coherence) without macOS automatically switching ALL of my monitors to windows when I click on a windows app on ONE of my monitors. For example, if I have the macOS Google Chrome application open on my MacBook screen, and Visual Studio in my VM full screen on my external monitor, as soon as I click on the Visual Studio application, my Macbook stops displaying Google Chrome and displays the full screen space for the VM on my Macbook. I hope this makes sense, it's extremely annoying.

    Thanks in advance,
