1.0 x64 Win - Slide Show always starts on secondary monitor

Post by Burhan »

If I start a slide show it always starts on my secondary monitor. Independent of the setting I made in the preferences. (use dual-monitor)

I can say that it doesn't work for me. One monitor is plugged in via DVI while the second is running on a HDMI port. It doesn't matter which setting is used. It always runs on the second monitor (HDMI port).
It works normally on xnview classic.

I tried it now.
the slide show starts from the monitor where the "slideshow dialog" is currently opened (where you pick the folder and make all the slideshow settings).

It doesn't matter which monitor the application is currently bound to. The option in the settings (use secondary display) is being completely ignored

actually, you are right. I think I can get used to that.
Probably worth thinking about removing the option in the prefs so that others don't fall into the same mind trap. Unless it is not for something else?!

Thanks for helping
