Re: Version 7 problem

Hi John

Thanks for replying. I’m running a second instance of FH7 with a different FH7 Project open in order to copy/paste info from the second screen which has this problem, to a different project on the first screen which does not have this problem.


When I say I adjust the offending window I mean stretch or adjust the Source window Property Box, when I do this everything is fine until I click a different tab within that Source window and then it jumbles up again. See below.


Kind Regards


David Charles Potter

Are you talking about running the whole package on the second window or just the pop-up window?

Also what exactly do you mean by “
if I adjust the offending window slightly” are you changing settings or are you physically moving the monitor?


I have no problems running with two monitors on my Main PC

I still can't solve this issue. I have checked all drivers and monitors, HDMI cables, settings everything I can think of. I have a laptop and two additional and identical monitors. It only ever occurs on the 2nd monitor. I'll try a VGA cable today, and a couple of other things I thought about last night.

What is odd is that if I adjust the offending window slightly everything appears correctly, then when you start using the tabs once again the problem returns???
