Details area issues on multiple monitors

Post by apepper » Sat May 23, 2020 12:51 am

Hi, I'm getting some problems with Mixcraft 9 (latest version) on multiple monitors.

I've previously reported sizing uses when running M9 on a hidpi monitor and trying to have the details on a lower res screen. I've now got two hi-dpi monitors, running on one and putting the details on the other screen, if I try and maximum the details by dragging it to the top of the screen, the top of the window is above the monitor - so I can't drag it down.

By hiding and reshowing the details I managed to drag it down and it works well. But when I close and reopen Mixcraft, it doesn't open as it was left but things get moved around. My problem is, the projects I'm working on are in MX9 format and I can't open them in MX8 - which doesn't have any problems with multiple monitors. Until the multiple monitor problems are sorted, is there any way to save a project in MX9 so it can be read by MX8?

Hi,

No, because Mixcraft 8 would become flummoxed by the new features in Mixcraft 9.

I'll pass along your comments to the software developers.

You've got build 460, right? If not, try updating.

Hi, thanks for the reply; yes I'm running 460 - always trying the latest version.
