Problem with 2 monitors at one computer


Recommended Posts

Posted · Problem with 2 monitors at one computer

I work with Windows 10 and 2 monitors. The main monitor is "extended" by the second monitor. Both monitors are connected to one graphics card.

When I start Cura 5, the window where the plugins are loaded always appears on the second monitor. Cura itself is then started on the main monitor.
If I then start the marketplace from Cura, or print via Octoprint, both dialogs are displayed on the wrong second monitor.
Dragging and dropping the dialog or moving it does not change anything.
If I start Cura 4.13.1, both work correctly and it is always displayed directly on the main monitor.

If only one monitor is connected it works correct. I wrote this in a german facebook group and there are more users with the same problem.

Any ideas for a solution?

I am about to completely give up on Cura because of the constant issues with multiple monitors. This has always been an issue and always had to do some kind of work around (unplugging monitors etc.). How about instead of a work around, Ultimaker fix the issues. I bet over 90% of users have multiple monitors.
