Dialog boxes appearing on second display
I run Illustrator CC on an iMac (5K, 27-inch, late 2015) running Mojave, with a secondary ViewSonic display for browser windows, etc. I do my design work on the iMac display. Sadly, all of my Adobe Illustrator dialog boxes (save, etc.) appear on that second display (this has been the case for the last few CC releases, and predates Mojave)—it got so annoying that I disconnected the second display for a while. No issues with the other Adobe apps I run (Photoshop and InDesign). Would love to see this resolved.
Please upgrade to latest Illustrtor version 23.0. We did fix something similar. However we do recommend and support Illustrator only on primary monitors
This has been happening to me for over a year now. I would love to see a solution, as it's quite frustrating when app-specific dialog boxes appear on a display in which the app is not running.
Thanks anonymous, worked for me
Hi Ashutosh — I was actually using the newest version (23.0). But! I spent a bit of time looking around online and finally found a solution: Toggling on (and then off) "Application Frame" somehow reset things so dialogs now appear only on my primary display. I'll take it!

update did not fix this for me. I have a MacBook Pro and a second monitor that I use for my primary screen.
