Two Monitor View: add small preview window to main monitor?

Post by saguaro » Fri Jul 06, 2018 8:57 pm

The Two Monitor View feature is fantastic, thanks. I got it to work by first "extending" the monitor display from my laptop to my second monitor. I am then able toggle it by Ctrl+F12.

When the Two Monitor View is enabled, would it be possible to display (as an option) a small preview window on the main display that shows the second monitor's view? The reason this is very helpful is that when I'm doing outreach or star parties, I position my second monitor (which shows the captured image) around to face the audience. But then I wouldn't be able to see the captured image any more on my main monitor (my laptop screen). Thanks.

Hi,

thanks for the suggestion - it's a good idea! I will have to think about the technical implications as the code is currently written around having one display area that just moves from place A to place B - not sure how tricky it will be to have two...

cheers,

Robin
