Spotlighting Functionality

In newer versions of Zoom the way the spotlighting feature works has wrecked my production workflow. I have been using dual-screen mode within Zoom to have a grid view and single spotlighted view which I capture and re-stream. But now when I spotlight a participant, their image is displayed full screen on both of my monitors and automatically resets my grid view. I can’t imagine why I would ever want the same image full screen on both of my monitors. I am continuing to use older Zoom versions until this issue is resolved but I have opened a ticket about this same topic over a month ago and with each new Zoom version this function has not been corrected. When a participant is spotlighted they should be appear full screen on one of the monitors while leaving the second monitor in the grid view that it was set to previously.
