    graphical issuses with laptop in multiscreen use, why?-grafikkarte_fragezeichen.png
    Hello Reviter,

    We got new laptops, they are very weel regarding RAM and CPU etc., but when we use them in multiple Screen mode, they got graphicproblems like in the pic!
    Sometimes dropdownmenues does not open in any way? Or they are to big, or at the wrong place, particularly when i use 3 screen (2seperated)!
    How can I calibrate my laptop regarding multiscreen usige?

    We use INTEL(R) HD Graphics 520

    Does anyone know why? And what can I do? Graphic card update?

    I am glad about any help

    KR

    Andreas

    I don't know the why, but under Display Settings when we set all the monitors to the same Scale and Layout percentage (100%) our issues went away. By default, the laptop display scaled to 125% while the monitors were at 100%.

    Intel cards are not supported... Is that the only video card on your laptop? Usually there is an nvidia or AMD card on there, if not, you will experience lots of issues. You will most likely have to disable hardware acceleration in Revit.

    Take a look here: https://knowledge.autodesk.com/suppo...nfraWorks.html

    Also make sure the resolutions of the laptop and the monitors are pretty close, too much change will make Revit freak out sometimes.

    Here's a bit more insight on that...Autodesk Knowledge Network: Unresponsive drop-down menus or graphics issues when using multiple monitors with different display settings in Revit

    We also encountered an issue with text printing too large with different display settings: Text size and boxes appear larger in print preview and prints in Revit on Windows 10
