Bug Description

***** new feature:
Python: use the constant ALL as region, to search on all screens (equivalent to what you see in Preview)
Java: ScreenUnion sall = Screen.all(); //same behaviour as Screen objects

BE AWARE: depending on number and size of your monitors a search might be lengthy and you risk memory constraints.
So use with care and get back to small regions as early as possible.

I have two monitors: first has Sikuli IDE running, and second has full screen RDP session. If I capture an image from this session and type in IDE "wait(<this image>)", it doesn't work failing to find an image:
org.sikuli.script.FindFailed: FindFailed: can not find 1348576930232.png on the screen.

At the same time if I click image in the IDE and choose "matching preview" it successfully finds the region on screen.

More details: Sikuli X-1.0rc3 (r905)
My OS: Windows XP
OS of RDP target: Windows 2008 Server R2, 64 bit

For a find operation you have to tell Sikuli, on which screen to search for the image.

"matching preview" does more, than you can do in your script, in that it shows and searches both monitors.

scr1 = Screen(1) # somewhere at the beginning of script


sr1. wait(<this image>)

summary: - Sikuli doesn't detect images inside remote RDP session
+ Sikuli doesn't detect images on second monitor

thank you raiman,
sikuli finds and clicks now on images as expected if I use your scriptcommand.

but I think it's not what new users are expecting as behavior.
and it makes sikuli more uncomfotable as I have to put scr1 in front of all commands.

absolutely right ;-)

it is on the list, to switch the monitor on the fly, so that all following actions are directed to this monitor.
