I have a problem that I'm sure has been answered but I can't find it.
I have two monitors on my system and when I bring up EffecsLab Pro the splash screen is centered between the two monitors and the working window always opens on the 2nd display (not the primary).

Is there someplace I can adjust this so it will open on the primary display?

what videocard do you have and what software do you own to drive the duel monitors

You don't need any software for duel monitors. Not sure bought the problem your having though, could be a vid card issue though

NVidia Quadro NVS 140M in a Dell Latitude Laptop.
Using the default Vista stuff.

If I run the laptop stand alone without the second montitor everything is fine.

Just goes nuts when I hook up the second monitor.

Guess I'm the only one with the problem.

What you can do is in EffectsLab:

  • Go to the "Edit" menu and choose "Preferences"
  • On the bottom right of the window that pops up, just above the "OK" and "Cancel" buttons, there is a section called "Window size".
  • Put the dimensions of your first monitor in there and untick the box next to "Run Fullscreen".
  • Restart EffectsLab and now you can drag it from the 2nd monitor to the first.

Let us know how this works out.
