File Menu going AWOL

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I've just hooked up a second monitor to my laptop, and now the drop down menus from FILE, EDIT, BUILD etc display off the screen (ie when you click on FILE, EDIT etc the menu is off screen). They seem to be offset to the left a certain amount.

 

To access the menus I need to minimise CA and move to the centre of the screen - a bit of a pain!

 

I've attached a screenshot showing the problem. 

 

When no plan file is open the menus appear correctly, and when CA is on the original Laptop screen the menus appear correctly too. 

 

The screen with the 'problem' is the 'main display' according to Windows. 

 

I've tried restarting both CA and the laptop to no avail. 

 

Any ideas?

I've ran into a few problems before with multiple displays, but nothing like this. Which version are you using? Does this still happen if you switch the main display? This sounds like something to bring to Chief customer support.

I have only encountered this type of problem on monitors with certain aspect ratios. Some times the display height of the monitor at its default setting is not enough to accommodate the height of the pop/drop down menu and as such some of it is hidden below the bottom of the screen. You may need to change the resolution of the offending monitor or the scaling.

Thanks for all the replies. Somehow the problem has remedied itself - whether that was graphics driver auto updating or a windows update or something we're not sure.

issues like this made me decide to go with a single 37" TV

instead of multiple monitors

I was tempted to get a 4k monitor or similar, but being used to two monitors I decided to stay with that option.

 

Not sure on how it works 'tiliing' all the different windows works on a 4k monitor!
