Dialog boxes appear in the wrong monitor when opening a project, importing footage or when the mac finder needs a response. This is not the case when using photoshop. I've even tried swapping dvi ports and moving the menu bar back to the left.

Thanks.

I get what you're saying but the dialog boxes won't remember
where I like them to pop up no matter how many times I've dragged
them over to the left monitor.

In AE lingo, you want to save a prticular workspace. Did you do that?

I do have a workspace saved. I just tried moving OS dialog boxes to the desired monitor and saving a new workspace but they still open up to my right. Even after restarting AE.

Sounds like an OS issue rather than an AE problem.

The dialog boxes stay in the preferred (left) window if I keep all of my AE windows there.
As soon as I put an AE window in the right monitor the OS dialog boxes show up there to.
