Thread: capture bug on multimonitor setups!

    Default capture bug on multimonitor setups!

    hi there,

    i have a 4 monitor setup like on this screenshot:



    monitor number 2 is my primarys screen and connected with the monitor 1 to my 8800GT, on my second card, 8400GS, monitor 4 and 3 are connected...

    when i capture the whole screen with irfanview, it starts left with monitor 2 instead of 4, appending monitor 1 and then twice a "black monitor"

    -> http://stuff.siginfo.de/irfan/falsch.jpg

    when i use the "print" key instead and paste it into irfanview its allright

    The reason may be that monitor 4 will use negative coordinates because 2 is your primary.
    What happens if you set 4 as primary?

    So it really looks like that there is a problem in Irfanview if there are monitors left or above the primary. Would be nice if Irfan would habe a look to this issue.
