is there a way of duplicating screen 1 and 2 and then flipping screen 2. I want to use a teleprompter and I need the screen 2 to be a flipped (inversed image)
many thanks

You could do something like this using DisplayFusion. If you setup your second monitor as "landscape flipped" orientation, then use the Mirror Window DisplayFusion function you can mirror your teleprompter window. Then just move this mirror to the flipped monitor and it should appear upside-down. I hope this helps!

The mirror function in DF means "copy of." Teleprompter displays are reflected onto a mirror which means the text has to be drawn on the display in "reverse" or "mirror image" so it appears as regular text when reflected onto a mirror. DF doesn't do this so far as I know (I think this was discussed once but my search skills fail me at the moment).
There are several teleprompter programs/shareware available (I've had to use them for research projects) that work in both DOS/Command line, and Windows. The mirror function in DF can then duplicate the required display/window to suit your needs.

DisplayFusion can't flip it on the horizontal, sorry! We do have an open feature request for that, so I've added your vote to it.

Thanks!

In addition to providing the feature of reversing left/right for use in any device that uses a real physical mirror, I would like for everyone to decide on a valid way of describing that feature. Currently when I say the word 'mirror' I would like that to mean the equivalent to a physical mirror that we all stand in front of to see ourselves. And if we would like a right reading exact copy of a computer screen or computer monitor, I would like to use words like 'duplicate', 'dup', 'copy', 'replicate' or even 'photocopy'. A Xerox copy always came out 'right reading', didn't it? Try any word, but please don't misuse the word mirror simply because Microsoft chose to misuse it.

I would like this feature, too. I'd like to be able to "mirror flip" a PowerPoint presentation on the second display to use with a teleprompter setup. I agree about the confusing/incorrect terminology. Another term you could use is "flop," which is the printing term for mirror flipping. But that would have zero recognition! For the setup I'm attempting, I think only the PowerPoint window would be flopped, not the whole display. If it's easy to disable this feature after the presentation (to continue a Zoom without the display flopped), then it should be OK for the whole display to be flopped.

Any news about this "mirror flip" feature?
This is very useful to use a second monitor attached with a teleprompter.
I have searched a lot about other software like ultramon, with this feature with no success. If you are using linux, its so simple using xrand.
But Windows users canĀ“t use this feature.
Please help!!

I (also) have a small pc monitor that want to use as a teleprompter screen.
I'd pay extra for this 'horizontal flip' feature
Who knew that this would be so difficult--on the Windows platform?!
Any ideas beyond UltraMon are welcome.
Ultramon only seem to mirror the primary screen--I want a dedicated horizontally flipped screen.
Camera Monitors (like the Lilliput 10.1) DO flip, but they don't go to sleep like regular monitors
