Esignal with multi monitors

  1. Thank you, Jay and 50_cent. It seems that I now have 2 options. Although I am vaguely familiar with the pop-out window, and I am more likely to use this alternative, I have a question regarding 50_cent's method of multiple application of eSignal. In order to run eSignal separately and simultaneously, is it necessary to install the program in two different directories?



    P.S. Jay, if I pop out a chart in one layout and move it to the other screen, what happens to that popped out window when I switch layouts in the first monitor? Does it remain or does it close along with the associated layout?

  2. No, you just double click the eSignal icon twice, and it is launched twice.

    Popping out the windows is a much better alternative.

    I used to use 2 instances of eSignal when I had only one monitor. I wanted to watch 2 layouts at once, but had only one monitor, and switching layouts was really slow (slow computer). So I had two instances running and simply flipped among them all the time using Alt+Tab. Worked like a charm.

    I've been using e-Signal with other software for 3 years now on my (8) monitor system. Everything works well; dragging windows, stretching charts, having everything remain where I left it on shutting down. I've been using the pop out windows lately and I like their additional usability to overlay on any applications that I'm running. Overall I am very happy with e-Signal.

    A popped out window is part of the layout, so unless that window is present in your other layout, then it would close upon closing the layout.

  7. damn.. I use 2 monitors with 1600x1200 resolution. I could use another one I guess, but so far for a piker like me, it is not justified.
