When you install the matrox drivers, you must select 'Install enhanced multimonitor support'. Once in windows, in your advanced display control settings, for multimonitor mode, you muse select different resolution & # of colors foe each monitor.
Now, you can still use the same resolution & number of colors on each screen, but now, WinXP/Win2K now understands that you have 2 different screens connected instead of 1 large wide screen. Now the OS, will prevent these message windows from appearing right in-between the 2 monitors. ____________ Brian Guralnick ----- Original Message ----- From: "Thomas" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: "'Protel EDA Forum'" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Sent: Thursday, April 18, 2002 9:08 PM Subject: Re: [PEDA] dual monitors | | | > -----Original Message----- | > From: Abd ulRahman Lomax [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]] | > Sent: Friday, 19 April 2002 2:32 AM | > To: Protel EDA Forum | > Subject: Re: [PEDA] dual monitors | > | | > If the Protel window is maximized, it spreads across both monitors; | > individual windows can then be sized so that one window is on | > one monitor | > and another on the other monitor. | | Using Matrox PowerDesk, version 6.82.016 if the Protel window is maximized | it fills one monitor only. | | I have to 'restore' the window to a smaller size and then stretch it across | both monitors. | | Annoying, perhaps I should revert to the earlier version. But I seem to | remember having problems (crashes) with this earlier driver on my system, | and I have had only one problem with the latest version: | | Protel is expanded across both desktops (as above) and I open a single | schematic which is centred half on one desktop half on the other. When I go | to place a part on the half of the schematic showing in the second monitor | the part jumps to the middle of the second screen when the cursor is about | 25% of the way across, (whilst the part is still being carried). Moving back | across the 25% line the part jumps back under the cursor. | | As having one schematic open this way is annoying (I usually maximise Protel | so it fills only one monitor when working with a single document) this is | not really a problem for me. | * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * To post a message: mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] * * To leave this list visit: * http://www.techservinc.com/protelusers/leave.html * * Contact the list manager: * mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] * * Forum Guidelines Rules: * http://www.techservinc.com/protelusers/forumrules.html * * Browse or Search previous postings: * http://email@example.com * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
