I've been using smoothboard with a dual monitor setup (laptop monitor and projection whiteboard monitor)It seems as if the wiimote sensor is reading the whiteboard display and the laptop monitor simultaneously; so if I'm using adobe Photoshop, by drawing onto the whiteboard, I also end up selecting items on the laptop screen; and instead of drawing a single point, the cursor ends up drawing a line from the IR pen tip to the corresponding point of the primary screen. If I'm drawing on the far right of the screen, I am able to make the single point, but whichever side of the screen the primary display connects to, the cursor becomes stretched, as if the surface area of the softboard layout is too small, and it's trying to compensate by stretching the area affected by the cursor.Clearly, this setup is not working; are there any settings I need to adjust to make this work?It seems as if there is a bug which causes dual displays to merge in the softboard program, anyone have any suggestions?
Boon Jin, In my smoothboard screen settings, I only see one display under "track partial screen area". I've also tried to "select screen area to track" I've selected Whiteboard>Screen>secondary display.Is this incorrect, Is there a way to change this setting?I have the dual monitor set up so that they are completely separate displays, (the toolbar does not show up on monitor 2, when I click identify, the number one shows on laptop monitor and the number two shows up on projection.)I'll try to take some screenshots or make a video if I fail to explain it properly this time; it's as if the wiimote selects the same point both on screens 1 and 2, and affects whatever part of the screen corresponds to the whiteboard. In photoshop, the paintbrush tries to connect these two points with a straight line.I did not realize what was happening until I noticed that while working on my projection monitor with IR pen, items on the primary laptop monitor #1 had been selected, opened, changed, etc. without having even calibrated the primary screen, without having selected anything with the mouse.If I'm pointing the IR LED at the upper left hand side of the screen on the whiteboard, the IR will highlight and select both the items on the whiteboard and the items on the upper left of the laptop monitor, likewise for lower left up until about Center of screen.If I move the projected monitor (in extended monitor settings), this error is the same, but the axis is on the bottom left of primary screen and bottom left of projection, so that lower left of projection affects lower left of primary, etc. When I am using photoshop, this causes a straight line to be drawn between those two points on the canvasbut when I am on the side of the screen farthest from the seam between monitors, this problem does not occur. It seems as if the problem has something to do with the interaction of the two monitor workspaces. I'm not sure if that is clear enough, I may have to make a video or JPEGs tomorrow when I have more energy.
Boonjin, Yes, the cursor jumps back and fourth, as if it's trying to decide which display it's affecting; but by clicking the option "limit cursor to selected screen area" under "cursor control", this problem is fixed.
