GoToMeeting Share One Application While Working On Another

I'm using GoToMeeting on Windows 10 .  I am the coordinator. When I share one application, such as a document in Word, I would like to work on another document, such as my notes, using Word or a Notepad. When I try to use the second application, GTM puts a flashing border around the second application and tells me I can't do that.


Is this a fundamental limitation of GTM, or do I have some setting wrong?

Re: GoToMeeting Share One Application While Working On Another

@VRoberts Hi there,

What you are seeing is normal when you have selected to share a specific application window.  When you overlap this window frame with any other active application it will interfere with the screen sharing of your selection and let you know as much by flashing to get your attention.


** This should not happen when other application windows are separated from the presentation window. 


Do you see the same behavior when you share one full monitor, and work on the active application from the secondary monitor?
