Two monitors problem

Two monitors problem

Two monitors problem

I have just installed a second monitor in my office, and moved mathcad over to the second monitor. This is practical for many reasons. I can study a cad-file or a document simultaneously as performing calculations.

However, the toolbars is still "stuck" in the other screen, such that when mathcad is active, they are blocking for a document on the first screen...

RE: Two monitors problem

That's true, was there a question?


RE: Two monitors problem

Actually no...smile But here is one;

How do I move the toolbars to where they belong?

RE: Two monitors problem

If you just can't change your process to run MathCAD on monitor 1 then I've found it best to just close the toolbars.  Sometimes that is a pain, but usually it isn't a big deal.


RE: Two monitors problem

It's probably for the best. I've becom enough experienced to know the most common "hot-keys" after all...


RE: Two monitors problem

I have noticed the same problem.  I don't have a fix.   I have a second monitor that I have rotated 90% so I can see more lines of code or text.  The floating too bars stay on the main monitor.  It is only a minor anoyance.

RE: Two monitors problem

If you make your second monitor the "primary" monitor then the toolbars will go on that monitor.... but that's the only "fix" I've found
