Latte very laggy on my dual monitor(primary)

Firstly, love the KDE Dragonized look and feel, it is amazing. Love the speed love everything. Thank you for making this. I feel like the search is finally over.

I freshly installed Garuda KDE Dragonized on my new MSI Bravo 17. It has AMD Ryzen 7 CPU and AMD Raedon RX GPU. Everything works amazing except when I connect my monitor and use it as primary display. My monitor is 60 Hz and laptop is 144 Hz. When I move my mouse pointer over the latte dock its super laggy. It is unusable I cannot click on anything because the animation never ends. Even the app launcher has the same behavior. When I make my laptop primary everything works well. I am using it this way now.

And keep doing that.
Primary is a technical term, not positional or other personal preference.
Laptop's monitor is Primary by design/definition.

Why do you think you have to change the Primary monitor setting?

I guess I have always used it that way. I was able to add another dock to latte and it worked. But yes I understand. Thank you.
