Move Window to Next Monitors

Matthew Avery
2 discussion posts
Hello,

When I click on the Move windows to Next Monitor option, it moves the window to from monitor 1 to monitor 3, monitor 3 to monitor 2 and monitor 2 to monitor 1. It used to move the window from monitor 1 to monitor 2, monitor 2 to monitor 3 and monitor 3 to monitor 1. Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks in advance!

I'm having this issue as well, except I only have dual monitors, so the a window initially on display #1 will move 1->2, 2->1. If I press my shortcut for "Move Window to Next Monitor" then the cycle repeats. Restarting DF restores proper operation for a time. I haven't been able to catch this in the logs (yet), as I don't usually have logging enabled. It's as if the Function is running twice. Started with DF 9.7 -- everything was perfect on 9.6.

Oooh just got it. Here's the log!

PS the function used on this occurrence is "Move Window to Next Monitor and Size Proportionally", however I originally was having this problem with the non-proportional variant. I tried switching to the proportional version and immediately had the same exact issue. That was, by pure chance, the one caught on the log. Behavior is exactly the same for both functions.

Sometimes the order that DisplayFusion sees your monitors might not be the desired order. However, you can use this advanced setting to force DisplayFusion to see the order in a custom way:

Thanks! That worked like a charm.

Thanks, looks like I'm having an unrelated issue. I thought the OP was seeing, from a single activation, the window jump to 2 consecutive monitors. I will open a separate thread.
