Alright, so I have a bit of a frankenstein system going, and hopefully someone can help me sort out what's not playing nicely together.

I have a Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H motherboard & i7 3770K processor, and I'm running 2 monitors (display port & VGA) + a projector (hdmi) off the onboard video.   If  unplug the VGA monitor, smoothboard works fine, and I can get it to calibrate properly on the projector.  If I plug the monitor in, the smoothboard writing only appears on that screen (and will only calibrate on that screen)

Any ideas?  The monitors and projector are separated, so I can't very well treat all the screens as one.

Thanks

Hi Kodiak,

Smoothboard only works between the primary and secondary monitors. If you may not be able to use Smoothboard on the third screen.

For your case, is it possible to switch the monitor numbering (between primary/secondary etc).

Hmm. I thought I tried that, but I will try again.  I think my system automatically decided the VGA and DisplayPort screens were the #1 and #2 monitors.

Just to make sure I didn't miss anything, what's the procedure for changing the monitor numbering? I'm using Windows 7.

The monitor numbering depends on your graphics drivers. You may try to explore the advance settings of your graphics drivers.
