There are many applications built for X11 but running in Mac OS X using XQuartz. I heavily use Inkscape and it is so annoying when you have 2 or more monitors but constantly have to struggle with XQuartz windows. Inkscape disappears when moved to another monitor and there is no way to move it out unless switching to mirroring and moving the window to the outer border.

That was so annoying until I found a workaround that finally works! I’ve found it in Inkscape bugtracker, thanks to ~suv (suv-lp)! What you need to do is open Mac settings, then Mission Control section and uncheck “Displays have separate Spaces”. That’s it. After you log out and log in back your XQuartz will start displaying on other monitors.
