Indeed, I too use the X-rite i1 Studio, and the monitor looks good using their calibration.  However, when I calibrate the printer using their software, the resulting printer profile give a very dark print with a pronounced orange cast similar to what was described here in the first message by Dave.  Yet, using the same printer profile and printing from Lightroom gives a fairly accurate print.  I need to try again and make sure I'm not double profiling.  If I default to let the printer manage, then the prints are OK, albeit a tad dark.

Today, 1/14/2020, is the first time I read these posts, as I found my colors off with the iStudio calibration.

I'm having an issue with the resolution on a Lenovo W540, 2880 x 1620 Native Resolution, nVIDIA Quadro K2100M video card.

Somehow, when I first installed QImage, all was well, full screen not an issue.  Then Adobe went into my computer trying to fix a PS CC6 s/n validation (which they failed after 4 log onto my system, resetting firewalls, permissions, etc), and now most of my programs (aside from Lightroom), come up with tiny print and workspaces (e.g. Quicken, Photoshop,

I checked all my video setting and preference to no avail. Chrome, Lightroom, Perfect Effects,  Photomatix, and more all work well.\

Any hints on the software "switch" that may have disappeared?

Thank you so much.  I understand your analysis.

I'm actually starting to appreciate the bar at the bottom - it's only 1-2" mouse swing.  Guess we'll look at the set up later, and/or wait for a new driver.  The key of cource was to solve this and get 'Ultimate' working. Your yellow logo now has a 'Smiley' face.

THANK YOU for your fine support.

OK, so I reversed the monitors.  Realined all the icon back to the smaller menu monitor... but the Win Task bar is on my PS working desktop.  I did not want that, which is why the monitors were set up that way.  The little monitor on the right (and I'm right handed) contains all my palettes, menus and and Windows task bar.

I checked, and from the little I read, the Win task bar will anchor to any of the 4 side of the main monitor, but I can't seem to figure out how to transfer it to my smaller menu/control monitor.   Any hints?

QImage doe appear to work correctly that way.  A nice relief  Smiley

Hi Mike,  Just noticed that when I use the Win 7 Snip tool to capture the WHOLE windows, it included the two monitor screens.  Did the snip again using the select tool, and here is the one monitor again, with the editor squirreled to the left.

Thank you for your effort in resolving this. Bear in mind that the 2010 Ultimate did not have that issue.  If you wish, send me older versions, I I'll unstall/install and see when the issue surfaced.

Need any other info?  Video card? Drivers? et al.

Hi Mike.... got 121, same issue.  Using old faithful 'Studio' with no problems.

Dan, interesting scenario.  Yes the issue is somewhere in the area, be it QImage or the Graphic card drivers.

When I change the option to "Ensure that the “Prevent windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge of the screen” is CHECKED"

then when I try the editor, it pop unto monitor [2] which is not calibrated..... works fine, it will not however minimize or resize. Closes OK, relaunches OK.  BUT, when I drag it to the [1] calibrated monitor, which also has the main QImage program, it drags OK, but when I unclick, Poof it goes to the left side, about 1/20 or 1/18 of the screen.  Whenever I try to pull it ANYWHERE, be it monitor [1] or [2], whne I unclick it snaps back to the corner.  NOW, I close QImage, and:

Ensure that the “Prevent windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge of the screen” is UNCHECKED

Same as above, I launch QImage, then the editor, opens on screen [2], but the results are the same.

So, toggling the check/unchecked, resets QImage (or Win 7 64bit) to display the editor on screen [2], but if I drag the editor to screen [1] in the center - not touching the edges, POOF it squirrels to the left side.

Maybe the issue is hidden in the fact that I cannot resize the editor on screen [2], and when transfered to screen [1] it blows up to full size and can;t handle the new screen parameter.  I'll get that screen dump later.

Don't know Mike.  But the version that was trialing (2010 v??) and working back then, was an early release, maybe 2 or 3 into the Ultimate 2010 releases.

It worked well, but I continued to use the Studio.  Today the Studio still works fine, but the latest release (I just purchased) of Ultimate 2011v120 comes up with the editor as mentioned, locked in a corner, and no image visible.

Any way to do a reset?  Maybe reinstall an early version, set if it works, then upgrade?  Cleaning out the registry of values?  I did install the 2011 over the 2010, w/o uninstalling.

Anything  can do, or you need to help resolve this?

I could share my screen on Skype, and you could see the results.

Hi Mike..... just upgraded from Studio to Ultimate, and the Edit windows is stuck in the left portion of the screen, as a vertical window, about 1/20th (~1.4" on a 26" NEC) of the screen.  I originally had the 2010 Ultimate version, and that was OK.

If I try to drag the window, it snaps back to the left.  Guess I need v121  Grin

In the mean time, I continue using the Studio, as that works fine.

Set up:  Win 7 Ultimate 64 - PNY 8500GT Card - dual monitor.  I guess you are on top of it, as I see others with the same issue.

An aside, is the D3S profile standard, or do I need a profile file.  On install, there never was a profile sub dir in either the Studio or Ultimate folders.  I manually created the folder, and await the program update to see the difference....

Cheers,  -= Chris the Ultimate Newbie =-
