Alert Visual Pop Up v.s. DuaL Display Screens

Postby 1@Chartmaster » 02 Feb 2013

In a one PC dual screen set up, what determines which screen the Alert Visual Pop Up is displayed to? The default in my system appears to be the charts on screen 1 and the pop ups on screen 2.

The alerts will pop up on your primary screen.

Thanks TJ. Is there no software solution?

Perhaps this can be changed, because this is also a minor annoyance for me, since I don't want a Windows task bar on my MultiCharts main window monitor (which I'll get if I change the primary screen settings just for MultiCharts).

Perhaps this feature request can then also be implemented in one go: MC-738 - Place the alert pop-up above the time.
