Getting Started Guide - External screen

I asked that you connect an external screen. So let's have a look at what we can do with it. 

If you don't have a touch screen, then you should connect an external mouse. This allows you to use the external screen better.

In the lower right part of the external screen, there's a button called More.... When you press this you'll get the Select View window. On the left side of the window there's an area called Arrangement:

Figure 1: Arrangement of External Screen.

This allow us to select 6 different view arrangements. Try to select the different ones.

On the middle top part you can see what the different arrangements look like.

The lower section of the middle part is the different special views you can assign, the standard views are on there usual position in the right side bar. 

When you have selected a nice arrangement you can select a tile (top middle section) and then select a view for this tile.

This closes the Select View window. 

You can always change what view you got, by selecting the title bar of the view and then select a different view in the view bar on the right side of the screen or by opening the Select View window.

There's one more way you can change what's on the external screen. Press the Setup key and then the Select Views for External Screen

This is the same view as Select View on the actual external screen. In the version displayed on screen 1 you'll keep it when you select different views for the different tiles. You can also use the encoders to change the arrangement and views. 

 

In the next chapter we are going to add some moving lights.
