Allow DisplayFusion to ignore monitor

User Image
2 discussion posts
Hi, I've set up 5 split profiles for my ultrawide monitor, and I have a second monitor aswell that I don't always have connected.

When the second monitor is added, none of my split profiles work and I just get an error when trying to load them:
An error has occurred while applying your new Monitor configuration.
Please check your settings and try again.
Error: Failed to call SetDisplayConfig. [HR: 31]

For my profiles to work, I have to set up a second set of profiles just for the second monitor (At least that's what I assume from previous encounters with this error.) and it doesn't even use splits.

Having 10 profiles just to get a variant with my second monitor seems dumb, especially since we can't nest profiles into folders (that's another idea right there!) so it would be great to be able to blacklist a second monitor and make DF ignore it, making less trouble when managing profiles.

Edit: Since my second monitor doesn't have a spesific spot and I tent to switch it up, that means I'd have to make a whole set of 5 profiles for every spot I put it, since it seems DisplayFusion also controlls where the screens are relative to each other, can we disable this?

Edit 2: Okay so maybe setting up splits on my second monitor wasn't such a mad idea, but jesus christ look at this, we really need a sollution to this:

We're working on some monitor config changes as we speak that should hopefully fix this up. We'll be sure to let you know when they're available in a beta!

We've made some changes to our monitor configuration code that should fix this up in our latest beta, as described here:

Please let me know if you run into any issues after updating.
