Would I be able to rotate my monitor 90 degrees ? like a portrait orientation then
Fitting the VCP below the main screen instead of been at the right side ?

Please have a look at the attached pic.

Thanks.

That is something that is easier said than done. There is a lot of coding, that is static, that is in place for the layout of the current virtual control panel. I have mentioned it to our software department to see if the orientation of the virtual control panel can be easily changed at some point in the future.

I hope Scott didn't give you the LOOK. :ugeek:

While we are on the subject, is there a setting that would make the CNC12 and VCP ~50 to 100 pixels smaller? Depending on the monitor some of my setups go off the screen edge by 20-25 pixels

$212.84 on amazon is cheaper but your post got me looking on ebay and i sent an offer to a seller and got a new in open box 2nd pct2235 coming from a seller for $170 shipped. So thank you indirectly. Never hurts to send an offer.

I have this issue with the Wizard on the ASUS 15.6" VT168-H, I have to scroll down a bit. I have used several Touchscreens and no real problem with the CNC12 screens.

PURDY, but don't dismiss the ASUS VT207N 19.5" and less than $200, sometimes refurbs can be found for much less.

That would be great if in future upgrade releases we can have this option , like when you dock or / and drag a windows on screen, then once set you can save the changes and always boot the software up on screen.

This would save a lot of space if you are installing the monitor on a side panel, basically for small machines. :D :lol: :lol: :lol:
