External monitor "disappeared"

I have a multi-monitor setup and have use one of them as the player. I recently upgraded to version 23.07.29 and had to (as per usual) re-create my layout after the upgrade.

I don’t see the Settings > Player > External Monitor option anymore … does anyone know if it has moved (if so, where( or did something else happen to it? (or is it “just me” …?)

Hi Brian … here are the answers:

  • Win 10
  • Shotcut 23.07.29 (as stated in post)
  • yes … problem is repeatable - in that the option simply isn’t there (see attached image)
    external monitor option missing

-GPU: AMD Radeon RX 570

…okay, I may just have found the answer (looked, but didn’t see before):

Drawbacks and Limitations

  • Settings > Player > External Monitor with a system monitor (not Blackmagic peripheral) is no longer available.

Is that it? - And is that a temporary bug, or permanent design decision? - If so (which would be sad), can you help me understand why? thanks a bunch

That is it for now and we don’t know yet about the future. The reason why is already given by the parent section from which you read that. I haven’t been able to get it working anymore after the major changes. Maybe you or someone else can figure it out. Meanwhile, there are still options already explained in linked posts.

Thank you for letting me know.
I appreciate all the hard work that has gone into the development so far - I have used Shotcut for a while now and really love what it has to offer. (I was just curious with the change/loss of feature THAT handy if there was some logic behind it - I will reread the other posts in detail … and hope that it will eventually reapprear again :+1:t3: … in the meantime, I will adjust my workflow accordingly). Thanks.
