Dual monitor: How to select monitor

Post by dualmonitorprobs » Tue Jul 05, 2016 4:49 pm

Hey there

I have been using your slideshow software for a while and its been great. I can make an SLD file and then launch it by command line which is super sweet. Recently, i have installed a second monitor. I want the content to go onto the second monitor however i cannot see how to assign which monitor the content goes to. There is the checkbox that says "Dual monitor , use second monitor" however the monitor i want it to go to is monitor number 1. I cant figure out how to do that. I have tried both settings of this box.

Monitor number 1 is the secondary display and monitor 2 is the primary display in windows. I want it the xnview content to go to monitor 1.

in programs like media player classic, there is a dropdown with all the monitors listed. I can find no similar thing. Can it be done by command line or something like that? please let me know.

Figured out the problem.

You have to open and close the browser one time on the primary monitor. Then the next time you launch the slideshow, it will display correctly on the secondary screen.

i also have "dual monitor, use secondary monitor" under options -> view -> fullscreen set to CHECKED

it must just remember its old positioning. So no way to configure it. just set it up correctly the first time and it will continue to display correctly going forward.
