2 Monitor Setup Difficult to move windows in P3dV4

Recommended Posts

I made this inquiry a few months ago and got no response. Thought I would try again. I have a dual monitor setup. I have an excellent C47 from Manfred Jahn which I greatly enjoy flying. However, the control pop up windows that are accessed by Shift 2-3-4-5 WILL NOT easily move to the second monitor. I have a BenQ 4K 32 main monitor and an Acer 27 as the second. I undock the windows and try to slide them to the second monitor. They stop at the edge. After repeated attempts which usually involve VERY quickly moving them, a  piece of the window appears on the 2nd monitor and I can then finish dragging the windows across. It is also VERY difficult to grab the windows with the mouse.

It is SO FRUSTRATING to set up a flight and have to fight to get the control panel windows off the main screen. Takes some of the joy out of flying this beautiful aircraft.

Anyone else run into this issue? It happens with other aircraft too. I fly the Carenado Beechcraft 1900D and the FMC and GPS have a hard time coming across too, but much easier than the C47.

Outside of P3Dv4 I can freely and easily move any other apps windows across at will.

Thanks!

I do not know this airplane.

But, normally it should be easy to move them after you have undocked them.

Once you have done that, you should save a flight scenario.

 

Then everytime you want to fly this airplane, you just load the scenario and the 2D windows should be where you once saved them.

Google Fsx panel store restore.  Works in all versions of p3d.  Freeware.  Once set up you just undock the panels on the main screen, press the shortcut and it moves them over , correct size and position.  Works every time.
