I have a MonacoOptix XR, and I’m evaluating the trial of ColorEyes Display on a laptop with an external LCD connected. I can profile the laptop screen, but I can’t figure out how to profile the external display. When I try to move the “Default_Monitor 1” window to my second display, it snaps back to the laptop’s display. I can move the background “ColorEyes Display” window to the second monitor, but that doesn’t help. When I actually start the profiling process, the window that is displaying the color swatches cannot be moved off the primary display.
I’ve searched the options, preferences, advanced settings, etc., and I feel like an idiot, but I can’t find any way to get that window on my external display. Well, not entirely true. I can uncheck the ‘extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor’ option in display properties, and then force the laptop to only display through the DVI port, and NOT on the laptop, and then I can profile the external display, but that seems really, really crude.
I have tried connecting the display to the VGA portinstead of DVI–no difference. It just appears to not know about my second display.
Am I missing something? Is this function not enabled in the trial version? Is this a mac-only function?
