Problem with Dual Monitors, different resolutions

Hey there, I've got a problem with my dual monitor setup...

On the left I have a 19" 1280x1024 monitor. On the right, I have a 24" 1920x1080 monitor. With my trial copy of UltraMon I can setup different wallpapers for each monitor as long as I have the correct sizes. However, with DF, I'm getting some weird results. Take a look at the attached screenshot...

Regardless of what I have set as my wallpaper on the left, the wallpaper on the right is pushed way off to the right. You can see where each monitor is by looking at the task bar. It almost looks like it's using the left wallpaper twice, then the right wallpaper.

Anyway, if anyone has any ideas of things to try, let me know! :) I went ahead and bought a copy of DF since it's so much cheaper than UltraMon, so I hope this is a quick fix!

EDIT: Ok, what's weird is that if I lock my PC the wallpaper displays normally... but then when I unlock, it's goofy again.

Thanks!

Are you running any other desktop management software, like "Fences"? This application has been known to shift the wallpaper off the screen.

Sorry, can you check one other setting in DisplayFusion? There is a setting in the Wallpaper window that says "Adjust Background for use with Active Desktop". Can you try applying your wallpaper with this set and un-set and let me know if it makes any difference? Thanks!

Ahhh... Fences was indeed the problem! Looking good now! Any chance of Fences support in the future? It's a neat app, but I can live without it for now.

Thanks a bunch!

I am working on Fences support for a future release.

Can you check one thing for me? When you are applying the wallpaper settings, is the "Adjust Background for use with Active Desktop" setting checked or unchecked? Thanks!

Jon, I tried it both ways, on and off. The result with it on was that the wallpapers shifted down a bit, but the horizontal alignment was exactly the same. If you want, I can turn fences back on and get a screenshot for you to compare against...

This problem seems similar to mine, except I don't run Fences. I've attached a screenshot of what's happening.

Both images are sized exactly to the screen resolutions (1280x1024 and 1920x1200). The image on the right is pushed over to the left screen. The image on the left wraps around to the right screen. I've tried with and without the Active Desktop checkbox checked. It doesn't make much difference.

I'm running Windows Vista Ultimate x64 with GeForce 7900 GS video card.

In an effort to cleanup the DisplayFusion forum, this topic is being locked and archived because it applies to an older version of DisplayFusion. If you are using the latest version of DisplayFusion and would still like some assistance, please create a new topic and I'll be happy to help you out. Thanks!
