Please check your settings and try again.

Hello,

Did you have any hardware changes when the issue started occurring?

Thanks!

I had plugged the computer to a different set of monitors. I think somehow windows must have changed a monitor number after I plugged to the desk configuration and this messed up all the saved configs. I had to redo them and save them again. I guess there is no easy way to make a quick modification in the config file (change the monitor number for instance) for cases like this.

Hello,

Ah yep, that would do it. Unfortunately if that happens, you will have to delete and recreate the profiles.

Thanks!

So I had the problem re-appear and was getting frustrating having to recreate all the profiles every time I was docking and then undocking the laptop. For other users that might face the same issue I found the problem. This new laptop has 2 Thunderbolt ports. Strangely enough if I was using the 2nd one the configurations were lost. I saw this also with one external display port monitor, plugging it in the 2nd port, the config was no longer recognized. So if after undocking and docking back again you cannot apply your monitor profiles, just try to plug in other thunderbolt port

It's very annoying. I'm sure it's mostly the shortcomings of how Windows handles the identification of monitors. But is there really no way to avoid the Monitor Profile feature breaking completely every time a monitor is unplugged? I find myself struggling with this more and more, and I'm at the point where I'll start looking for alternative solutions. It feels like something changed when DF got a visual overhaul, but I could be wrong.

If it's possible, the ideal solution would be to simply assign the new monitors to existing profiles. It should be as automatic as possible, or require very little effort to "repair" the broken profiles.

(Maybe I'm a particularly weird case, since my TV is connected to my computer in another room. This makes it hard to edit the profiles, since I have to walk back and forth because I can't save a "TV Only" profile without the TV being the only active monitor.)
