Configuring Monitor Splits for Bezel Correction

When setting up an NVIDIA Surround or AMD Eyefinity display group, it's possible to also configure custom resolutions that compensate for the space between physical monitors caused by the monitor bezels. Starting with DisplayFusion 7.0, you can configure monitor splits to also compensate for the monitor bezels. The monitor splits allow you to have separate taskbars, wallpaper, and screen savers on each physical monitor, while still leaving Surround/Eyefinity enabled.

Configuring Monitor Splits to Account for Bezel Corrected Setups

The following steps are for the fairly standard setup of splitting a 3 monitor NVIDIA Surround/AMD Eyefinity group, aligned horizontally. If you've got a different Surround/Eyefinity setup, the same general steps apply, but you'll need to modify steps 2, 5, and 6 accordingly.

  1. Disable the "Auto-Fill Splits" checkbox.
  2. Use the "Preset Splits" button to select the 3x1 option.
  3. Select each split, and set the "Width" values to the actual resolution of your physical monitor (not the bezel corrected resolution).
  4. Click the "Show Preview" button.
  5. Select the middle split, and using the "Left" box in the Location group, increase the value until you see the white line on the left side of the middle monitor.
  6. Select the right split, and using the "Left" box in the Location group, increase the value until you see the white line on the left side of the right monitor.
  7. Verify that all three monitors have a white line on all four sides, then click OK, and OK again.

The video below demonstrates these steps on a Surround group that consists of 3 monitors at 1280x1024, with a bezel compensation of 50px between each monitor. The video was captured on a very wide resolution, so it's best viewed full screen with the quality set to 1080p or higher.

These instructions are useless..... How do you start in Eyefinity/Surround mode, when you don't say how to get there? I'm starting with three separate screens, and wind up splitting/padding only one. At what point do you explain how to combine them? You could also try adding a SEARCH to your manual so I don't have to GOOGLE "bezel correction displayfusion" to link back to your ridiculous manual.

I regret paying for this inane software.

The steps to enable Eyefinity/Surround differ depending on the video card and driver version. Generally speaking, it involves opening your video card's control panel (AMD Control Center or NVIDIA Control Panel), and then configuring Eyefinity or Surround using their wizard.

Hope that helps!
