    Workspace Resizing Issue

    Folks:

     

    I recetly had to wipe my drives and reinstall evertyhing, includingAMC (v.8.8.1). Using dual monitors I previously was able to use my primary monitor for my timeline and source/playback widnows and my secondary monitor for all mybins, etc. Now I anno seem to resize my workspace/desktop to stretch all the way over through my secondary monitor (on the righ hand side). If I maximize the window (second from the right upper corner) I can move th workspace between screens but cannot seem to use all mdesktop workspace. (If I hit the Restore up/down again, it shrinks the workspace to about an eighth ofthe creen - really useful). Below is a screenshot of my issue (the cuby bear logo being the unusable space). How can I reclaim the entire image area for real estate use...? Thanks!

    Re: Workspace Resizing Issue

    Sounds more like a system issue. What graphics card are you using, and what's the driver version for that card? Are the display settings properly set up for extended displays? Are both displays set up at the correct size? And are the card specific settings correct?

    Re: Workspace Resizing Issue

    Thanks fo the idas. Am downloading the latest driver for my nVidea Quadro K2200 - although it's only marginally newer. I have tied playing around with the resolution sizes of each monitor with no real fix (the sizes change but oddly if I change on the other seems similarly modified. I do have it set on landscape and extend these displays... Will play around and get back. Thanks again. Tom

    Noe. Apparently had the latest driver. Going to play around with the resolutions but thus far n combination seems to display properly (and before I wiped and reinstalled, things looked okay...?

    Re: Workspace Resizing Issue

    So here's the best thus far I've found... If I change bothmonitors to the same displa resolutio, the display whips the entire desktop ack full screen to mnitor #2 (right hand). If I try to then drag the left edge of the desktop workspce all the way over to the left the screens collapse together in various odd ways. The bet I've managed is this below, where I still lose a quarterof real estte on screen two but it's better than only having one screen... (sorry to give everyone nightmares with the Media Offline...)
