The iOS Simulator crashes in a dual monitor scenario. It currently loads on my left screen, when I move it to view it on my right screen, it crashes exactly when the simulator takes half the left and half the right screen.

Can you attach the logs from a run of the simulator that has crashed? Located at C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Xamarin\Logs\Xamarin.Simulator

Are either of your monitors at zoom levels that aren't 100%?

And no, both monitors are just set at default zoom levels.

Crash still occurs in version when moving the simulator to a second monitor. I'm using Visual Studio Enterprise 2017, Version 15.2 (26430.16) Release.

Below is the beginning of the simulator log file. The rest of the log is the same as "Log file of crash" attachment.
