Photosop CS6: Font preview extends onto wrong monitor on multi-monitor setup

I have a two monitor setup, with Photoshop running on my left monitor. When I click on the Font name within the Character panel to see a list of fonts and their preview, the font list window extends outside the Photoshop window and on to the adjacent monitor.

The result is the font list is split into two, with roughly half on each monitor. There's a giant gap in between the two sides, from the monitor bezel and physical spacing, making the font list unreadable and useless.

Howdy Paul,

I cannot reproduce this problem when I try to use PS on two monitors. Are your drivers totally up-to-date? GPU turned on? What OS? What version of PS are you using?

Thanks,
David

I have two monitors at 2560 x 1600 running in Windows 7. CS6 version of PS. Problem also exists in CS5. Drivers are current.

I have this issue when the front preview size is set to any of the larger settings. I have a character settings tab in one of the right hand side UI blocks.

I've attached a screen capture which illustrates the probelm. What it doesn't show, however, is that in actuality, the split between monitors is about 4" which cuts the text in half and makes it impossible to read.
