Hello,

 

First post to the community here 🙂 So I'm running two main monitors which I always have. However, I recently got a 4k TV and mounted it to the wall. The goal will be to use it as a full screen only - kick back and watch the cut - monitor. 

 

I have them all set up. My issue is that I want to know if you can change which monitor to toggle full screen in. Right now, everytime I hit full screen, the only monitor that goes full screen is the monitor that has the program window up. I'm even trying with two monitors just to get the full screen to go to the other monitor and I can't. 

 

I have tried enabling mercury transmit. I have tried checking the box in playback, both boxes, or one, or the other, I've really tried every option in there. 

 

So the main question is, is there a way I can choose which monitor to be full screen? Thank you!

It really should be pretty straight-forward. I'm running three, used to run to for years. After clicking the Mercury Transmit option, click the monitor you wish to use for the T-O operation.

 

I also created a shortcut to be able to turn that on/off easily ... "Enable Transmit", you can get there by just typing "transm" in the keyboard shortcuts search bar. Mine is Shift-C.

Thank you very much for this response. Yeah, it all makes sense. Weird. I mean, I definitely tried checking both monitors, and enabling transmit. The problem is, no matter which is checked, the same monitor will go full screen. 

 

I guess I'll wait until I really get the 3rd monitor up and running to check in again about this. Definitely should be straight forward, but not getting the desired results with the straight forward method. At least I'm in the right window. Thank you!

Only check the one monitor you want for T-O. Leave everything else un-checked.

 

And of course, in the OS, your various screens should be 'extend desktop to this screen' mode.
