Mixer level bars only red in Dual Screen

PostMon Jul 23, 2018 1:21 pm

In DR15b6 on my windows machine it's the following issue:

1. If I work in dual screen mode the mixer shows only red level bars over the whole scales, not green, vellow, red.

2. If I switch to single screen it's all correct.

3. If I swich back to dual screen the level bars are only green over the whole scales.

4. If I start the program new it's the same problem like point 1.

In DR15b5 I didn't had this problem.

I’ve always wondered why the level bars were red sometimes and looked normal some other times. Tried to find in the user manual with no luck. It seems I’m not alone...

Okay, I found out the following: It is related to the screen resolution. Now everything works fine for me.

@Gary:
I simply increased the resolution of the screen by one level, that was all. It was a thought and a test, and it worked. Maybe you just try a little with the resolutions.
