Powerpoint documents don't follow the main window

I did a search but couldn't find anything relating to this so I thought I'd bring it up. PowerPoint 2007 has some odd functionality where it creates an document task in the taskbar for each open document in addition to the main window (which is the only one with a preview). Selecting any of those tasks merely changes which one is displayed in the main window (I assume this is designed entirely for the combined button mode, though the lack of previews baffles me a bit). The issue relates directly to the extra document tasks.

If you move the powerpoint main window to the secondary monitor (the only window that can be selected) the document tasks remain behind on the primary monitor with no way to relocate them. Is it possible to have the documents follow the PowerPoint main window? The screenshot below shows two documents open on the primary taskbar while the main window is open on the secondary (and like I said, the only purpose of those document tasks is to switch between documents on the main window).

As an aside: Interestingly while experimenting with moving the documents I also noticed that dragging absolutely anything over a DisplayFusion taskbar button will cause it to flash orange (i.e. start resizing something and mouse over a button, or drag something from the left taskbar over a button on the DisplayFusion one to make it flash).

Interesting, it looks like PowerPoint behaves like Excel. I'll have this fixed for version 3.1.6. Thanks!
