FSX with Dual Monitors

Recommended Posts

I recently installed the PMDG 747-400X pkg and I decided to use a 2nd monitor to see other views while using the #1 monitor for the cockpit view. Well this works fine , but I also tried to use #2 monitor to show the pages of the instruction Manuals while still showing the cockpit on the #1 monitor.(the manual is a pdf file outside FSX on my desktop). No Luck!!! Here's how I set it up, I moved the pdf file of the manual over to the #2 monitor & opened it that worked, then I started FSX and set up a flight using the 747, when I hit the fly now button the cockpit view opened as normal but the #2 monitor with the manual pages went black??? did I miss something or is it just that you can't see anything on #2 that's not in the program running on #1 monitor? any help will be appreciated.

Can't speak for FSX- but here is a pic of FS9 with the 747 manual open on my triple mon setup."747 Cockpit prep at the CYVR gate."If I recall, FS was open and then minimized so as to be able to click on the desktop Icon I have setup for the manual.(I create desktop Icons for all the components of all addons- such as manuals, fuel planners, panel cfg. etc. Very handy)Alex Reid
