Question about Microsoft ChiMei CMV938D 19" Widescreen LCD Monitor
A Chimei 19" CMV 938D monitor was purchased with a view to using it vertically for desktop publishing. The stand and mount were removed, rotated 90 degrees and reistalled so that the rather "lengthy" monitor stood upright to provide a "portrait" view of the screen. The desktop and all programs were then of course displayed "sideways" on the screen. Was unable to find any graphic card adjustments (for my existing card) or Chimei software or firmware that would allow the screen image to be rotated 90 degrees so it could be displayed in the vertical mode. The objective was to display the screen vertically so that when running Pagemaker, an A4 page being created could be viewed in full in "portrait" mode. Otherwise, on standard screens, it is never possible to see a "readable" version of a page - it is necessary to scroll to see the various sections of the page. Then a trial version of "Pivot" software was found that allowed the screen image to be rotated 90 degrees and this worked well with Pagemaker. BUT, the page proportions were incorrect. The A4 page was "tall and thin" instead of having the correct A4 dimensions. Clearly, this Chimei model is designed to deliver "digital TV" format and seemingly, nothing else. Does anyone have knowledge of any method of altering the relative proportions of the visible screen display? That is, make the horizontal (normally the "vertical" but now rotated 90 degrees) wider, without simultaneously making the vertical wider as well. The Chimei monitor controls allow shifting the image in the X and Y directions, but do not allow widening or narrowing. I'm stuck at this point. Another graphic card maybe? Ditch the "digital TV format" screen and try a conventionally shaped monitor? Or is there a hidden secret in Windows or another piece of software that allows the screen image size and shape to be controlled? Cheers, Sean You can email me on email@example.com
Many graphic cards enable you to rotate the screen up to 360 degrees. You could try to post this question again under you graphic card model instead of computer screen model as it is your graphic card that is certainly the problem.
