Custom Screen layout + Filters

Post by Ray » Sun Aug 18, 2019 11:39 am


I am running into a problem where whenever I create a custom screen layout (Via the multiple monitor tab) like this:
Screen Layout1.PNG
Screen Layout1.PNG (10.71 KiB) Viewed 380 times
I basically split the screen into 3 sections:
0 Meant to be for video
1 For horizontal images
2 For vertical images

This in theory works great (the splitting of the screens), but the problem I am running into is that the Filters section ignores these custom created monitors and basically just maintains the original monitor configuration for a 3 x full HD screen setup, this in turn makes it not possible to configure the filters for your custom screen layout.
Note the screen position.

Just wanted to make a note of this, as perhaps it has gone unnoticed.

Thanks! Keep up the awesome work :-)!

There is also an issue with the Filters after having split the screen into 2 parts via the split screen function. I have 3 screens, and after I split 1 screen into 2, and deactivate that option, the filter section will still keep showing the non-existing "4th split monitor"
This is the 4th monitor, which is non existent.

This is the option that causes a 4th monitor to be created but not being removed after the option is deactivated.

thank you very much for your feedback.
In your case the first issue is not a real problem, if you have 3 monitors and configure a layout with three section filters work as usual. Index 0 in layout definition is monitor 0, index 1 is monitor 1 and so on.
The real problem is when you have more sections than monitors. I will fix this issue on September.
About second issue, yes you can configure a non existent monitor but this has no effect and next time you will open configuration window it will disappear.
