Post subject:  Overview Window Placement

I use a computer with two video cards. The primary desktop for all work on card 1 and the secondary card for the Overview Window. However, I have to place the Overview Window onto that 2nd screen manually upon each restart of CP. Is there any way to automatically place the Window on monitor 2 instead of it always coming up as the same monitor of the CP application window?

I use 2 monitors on one video card. No matter how I arrange the desktops (primary,secondary) and position CamPermanent and the overview window, it is always well positioned after restart. CamPermanent saves the position of every window and re-position it at startup.

So I guess in your case it is different, because of the 2 physical video cards.

The file settings.dat saves the position of the main window (<FORMPOS>-1088,530</FORMPOS> <FORMSIZE>800,450</FORMSIZE>).
And in the used *.cam file, there is the postion of the overview window saved (<COLLWINDOWPOS>-1115,53</COLLWINDOWPOS> COLLWINDOWSIZE>640,400</COLLWINDOWSIZE>).
These values could be edited by hand. But normally this is not necessary, because the program saves and restores the correct positions.

Perhaps in your case a tool, like Winsize 2, could help. This tool saves and restores positions of windows.
