Hello ActualTools Support,

due to a change in my graphics cards setup and the associated three monitors, the arrangement of the monitors has recently changed.

Previously the middle monitor was assigned #2, but now it is assigned #1:

I have a lot of program specific settings in AWM that use the number of a specific monitor. Of course, all of these settings are now not working properly anymore.

In addition, the AWM command "jump to next monitor" no longer causes the respective window to jump from the left monitor to the middle monitor and then to the right monitor as before, but is now also jumbled according to the changed numbering of the monitors.

Is there any way to adjust the settings all together so that not every single setting has to be changed manually?

Dear David,

Sorry for a delayed reply. Unfortunately, for now there's no ability to re-number the monitors at will, this feature's still in our "to-do" list. Now we'll raise its priority so it should appear in the near-future updates.

Please DO update Actual Windows Manager with the ability to assign a soft monitor number to each monitor regardless of how Windows chooses to number them. I agree that when we use Win-/ that the window should cycle through the monitors in a logical order (clockwise, for example) and not jump sporadically between the windows just because Windows assigned illogical numbers to them. Please make this a priority. Thank you so much!
