Configuring Monitor Splits for Bezel Correction

January 5, 2015
When setting up an NVIDIA Surround or AMD Eyefinity display group, it's possible to also configure custom resolutions that compensate for the space between physical monitors caused by the monitor bezels. Starting with DisplayFusion 7.0, you can configure monitor splits to also compensate for the monitor bezels.
The monitor splits allow you to have separate taskbars, wallpaper, and screen savers on each physical monitor, while still leaving Surround/Eyefinity enabled.
This guide assumes you've already enabled bezel compensation in the AMD/NVIDIA Control Panel.
The following steps are for the fairly standard setup of splitting a 3 monitor NVIDIA Surround/AMD Eyefinity group, aligned horizontally. If you've got a different Surround/Eyefinity setup, the same general steps apply, but you'll need to modify steps 4, 7, and 8 accordingly.
  1. Right-click on the DisplayFusion icon and select "Monitor Configuration" (also accessible via the "Options" tab in "Settings").
  2. Click the "Splits and Padding" button.
  3. Disable the "Auto-Fill Splits" checkbox.
  4. Use the "Preset Splits" button to select the 3x1 option.
  5. Select each split, and set the "Width" values to the actual resolution of your physical monitor (not the bezel corrected resolution).
  6. Click the "Show Preview" button.
  7. Select the middle split, and using the "Left" box in the Location group, increase the value until you see the white line on the left side of the middle monitor.
  8. Select the right split, and using the "Left" box in the Location group, increase the value until you see the white line on the left side of the right monitor.
  9. Verify that all three monitors have a white line on all four sides, then click OK, and OK again.
The video below demonstrates these steps on a Surround group that consists of 3 monitors at 1280x1024, with a bezel compensation of 50px between each monitor. The video was captured on a very wide resolution, so it's best viewed full screen with the quality set to 1080p or higher.

Introducing CheckCentral

We're very excited to introduce CheckCentral, an incredible new way to manage all of your email alerts & notifications! As system administrators, we know the pain of having to wade through a pile of notification emails every day. Trying to set up some sort of system to deal with them within your inbox is a time-consuming and frustrating experience. Worst of all, there's no good way to deal with notification emails that, for whatever reason, never arrive at all. Perhaps a scheduled task on a server doesn't fire properly, and your backup application never starts to backup. That's certainly something you'd like to be made aware of! To handle that sort of scenario, CheckCentral brings intelligence to email notification management. CheckCentral will know what notifications to expect & when to expect them based on rules you set up. For more information, please see our introduction to CheckCentral!
