Xfce display problem with dual monitor

Hi. I recently switched to Manjaro linux and now use the Xfce4 as the desktop environment. Everything is fine except I have constant problems with using a second monitor with my laptop. The problem occurs when I unplug my HDMI cable and when I plug it in. Basically part of the screen goes black and it resizes. I tried saving a profile and use it. It does not solve this problem.
I dont know how to upload pictures so I will just link my reddit post here: https://www.reddit.com/r/ManjaroLinux/c … splay_bug/

#Picture 1 shows my normal display settings and everything is fine here with 2 monitors.

#Picture 2 shows my screen after unplugging my monitor. You cant see the black part of the screen (its always on the bottom 1/4th of the screen and on the right end of the screen about 1/3rd) but I positioned my display setting windows to show that there is still space. I can move stuff there but cant screenshot it seems. I am able to solve this by resizing my screen to 0.9 then back to 0.8.

# Picture 3 shows my screen and display choice after plugging in my monitor again. As you can see toolbar is "missing" (covered in black), second display is fine. I am able to solve this by moving around the monitor icons, clicking on the primary displays here and there.

This happens every time I use my monitor and its pretty annoying. Is there any way to fix this? Thank you!

One thing to note is that I tried out the GNOME DE and everything synced up well there but I don't like anything else about GNOME.

Re: Xfce display problem with dual monitor

Does the same issue occur if you leave the Scale value at it's default "1x"?

Also, this bug report looks similar.

Re: Xfce display problem with dual monitor

Yes it does solve the issue. I guess I can just leave it at 1x and scale it back to 0.8x once the monitors are set up. Thanks!

You might also consider creating a bug report so it can be addressed properly in a future release.

@wenyuan, I think you accidentally hit "report" instead of "reply". Here is your comment for this thread:
