panel size vs monitor resolution

#1 Post by dls13503 » Mon Jan 25, 2021 11:51 pm

i am setting up a touchscreen configuration inspired by Russ Barlow. i bought a couple of the Prechen touchscreen monitors, which appear in windows desktop configuration, and Nvidia control panel as 1080p.

when i create a panel in Air Manager 3.5, the monitors are listed as 1600x900. if i make a 1920x1080 panel, it is too big for the monitor.

can someone please explain?

thanks,
Dan

It’s too big because your monitors can not display 1920x1080. You may or may not of noticed that they are both 16:9 aspect ratios so all you need to do is scale it down in the panel setting to 1600x900. Simple.

I guess this is yet another case of not having Windows scaling at 100%. Also please note that version 3.5 is very very old.

thanks for the reply. it makes total sense.

except...

i changed each of the displays to 100% scaling, and now AM says my displays are 2400x1350. lol.

i guess it doesn't really matter; purely academic. everything works fine when AM thinks they are 1600x900 displays.

Out of interest, as the company produces various displays, what is the NATIVE resolution of your LCD panels- please not - native res is the res of the panel itself, not what it can be fudged to display.

It's the size that is being returned by Windows. Sometimes when you have tools from for example Nvidia running, the sizes show strange values.

4,0 release - I have the same problem. Mine does not display fine. It's to big or so small.

I removed nvidia util - Air manager now reports the monitor res correctly.
( I moved all 3 monitors back to 100% sizing. (I had one at 125

I rebooted and though the numbers of the res look correct now, the display is totally wrong. I removed all panels, loaded in my Cessna 172SP in FS2020 and no good it's a mess.

And why is AM the only program I can't pin to my task bar for quick access?

Not sure, I can pin to my task bar with no issues .... are you sure you are not trying to 'pin' a second icon to the taskbar for the same link ?
