15.2.1 Set Up a Second Monitor

The Viewer makes it possible to show information on two Monitors without having to move windows manually.

To enable a second display:

  1. Select the Options menu and the Settings item.
  2. Open the Monitor section. The window similar to the one shown in Fig. 15.2 will pop up.
  3. Check the boxes in the Use monitor column to select the monitor(s) to be used.
  4. Click OK or Apply to apply the changes, or Cancel to cancel the actions.
  5. In the restart confirmation window (Fig. 15.3), click Yes to restart or No to cancel restart and continue working.



The Viewer needs to restart to apply the changes. The studies currently opened in the Viewer will not be opened again after restart. The Viewer will request confirmation before restarting (Fig. 15.3).



If you are still working with the opened studies or if the information needs to be saved, click No to cancel the restart and set up the displays later. To restart the Viewer, click Yes.

If only one display is selected, the Viewer will be opened on this display. If two displays are checked, the Viewer windows will be displayed on both. To close the Viewer, just close any of the windows.
