Monitor profile defaulting to Monitor 2

I have a 3 monitor setup and when I change profiles, it always defaults to Monitor 2 as the main monitor ie taskbar and applications opening on it. I can go back into monitor profiles and make monitor 1 default and save. This resolves the issue but only until I change profile again.

Hello,

Strange, when you make monitor 1 your primary and re-save the profile, does it ask you to overwrite your current profile, or save it as a new one?

Thanks!

It just overwrites it and moves the taskbar from monitor 2 to monitor 1. FYI Monitor 1 is DP and Monitor 2 is DVI Out with a HDMI into the computer . Not sure whether this makes a difference, when the computer initially boots the bios image is on M2 and only goes to M1 when Windows logon appears. this behaviour is only recent

Hello,

Just to be clear, both monitor profiles have Monitor 1 saved as the primary, but when you change to either, it makes monitor 2 the primary?

If you make monitor 1 your primary and reboot, does that also revert it back to monitor 2?

Thanks!

Yes both monitor profiles have M1 saved as primary and when I change profiles M2 becomes the primary. When the machine boots it defaults to the main M1 as primary. M3 works as it should and always remains as M3 non primary.

Hello,

Thanks for clarifying. Could you send me over a debug log? Here are the steps:

  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > Troubleshooting tab, change the Logging drop-down to "L1: Log Minimal" and click Apply
  • Reproduce the issue and note the time so we'll know where to check in the log file
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button on the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Reply with the file attached
  • Disable debug logging after sending the log

Thanks!

ok please find attached file, i start on the G9 profile and switch to Main Horizontal and M2 becomes default rather than M1 as default, I also have issues when going back to G9 profile with Icons not loading.

Hello,

Thanks for sending that over. Does the issue persist if you delete and recreate the profile as well, rather then trying to overwrite it?

Also, do you have more then 1 video card?

Thanks!

i have only one video card and it is the same issue with new profiles when I have M2 / DVI monitor attached. If I have a 2 monitor setup only with DP as M1 and HDMI as M2 then it works fine, its only when I introduce the DVI monitor. I have also seen recurring issues with the icon profiles, it looks like the profile is actioned before all monitors have been assigned and the icons appear in the right order but across 2 monitors, manually loading the icon profile after all monitors are set up works fine. I'm wondering if the loading sequence in general is not giving sufficient time to complete a task before starting the next one, not sure

Hello,

That's an interesting note about the DVI monitor. Does the issue persist if you swap that out to use a different cable with that monitor? Or if you use that DVI cable on a different monitor, does the issue follow?

Thanks!

it only has the DVI connection, if I take it out of the 3 monitor setup and only use 2 (DP and HDMI) it works fine but the icons still need a manual update, i would say the icons activate too early before the monitors have completed changing, tbis needs addressed. Not sure why the DVI one takes presidence over the DP (M1)
