Full Screen View and Dual Monitors

Post by dforrest »

I have tried all the "Full Screen" settings in "Options" but cannot get the full screen display to display on my second monitor.

Can anyone help?
Thanks

You try Fullscreen from browser mode?

Yes, but it will only display on my first monitor even if the window I invoked this in, is on the second monitor.

Yes Pierre. it is the same in "Slide show". Whichever monitor I invoke it on, it always shows on the first monitor.

Thanks,

Full Screen View and Dual Monitors

Post by jimcamel »

I was also looking for the new beta so I could try the revised dual monitor setup; would I be able to get access to it. The links come up with a 404 now (Friday afternoon, Dec 14th).

On my system, I can get the second monitor to display the image in Browser mode and during the slideshow - so that seems to be working.

What I would like, however, in the Slideshow mode is to have the fullscreen view on the 2nd monitor and a preview, as well, on the primary monitor in a window.

A little more detail - we are using XnView in our photo club to judge images - and the display is working well for the judges to see the image. However, as the presenter I am off-angle and can't quite see what they are seeing - so it would be nice to be able to see the same image in a window on my laptop so that I could be sure that I am in-sync with them when making scoring entries on the spreadsheet running on the main monitor.
