Sidecar has no settings to change monitor arrangement. You only enable the iPad as an additional display in the Mac's System Preferences. You still have to go to "Displays" in your Mac's System Prefs to change the arrangement of the iPad as a display relative to your Mac. After (2) days of dragging things in the opposite direction to the iPad display it ...

I found another way of doing this and it does not require any additional cables. It can be done wirelessly and with our downloading any (non Apple) software. And yes, I've done this using a Mid 2010 21.5 inch iMac which alegedly does not support scree sharing. So, here is how to do it. You need an AppleTV Search for Screen Sharing on your old Mac which ...

I still have the same issue on a macbook pro 15' 2018. Unplugging and plugging again the screens helps without having to restart the whole thing... except that all open windows jump to the main screen.

I'd say that your MBP is limited to 2 external monitors. You can't sub-divide the same number of pixels across more displays.

HiDPI options are normally only seen on HiDPI monitors. Are you sure that your Aorus monitor is a HiDPI display? From what I can find on the internet, it's a 2560 x 1440 27 inch display. That said, the resolution options are a bit strange: there is no 2560 x 1440 option for example. You can sometimes get more resolution options by holding Alt (option) when ...

Check if your external monitor supports DDC/CI. If so, you can use this app to adjust the brightness using your keyboard.

I don’t have the unit to test, but would connect all the displays to the puck since it’s likely going to be the only active GPU. The good news is it supports 4x 4K displays through one cable from the Mac to the puck - so a quick call to the vendor to clear your case (or Apple) might let you know. I would worry about the LG display since it can’t take DP or ...

Yes, you can enable a 3 display config in roughly three ways: 1) Using an eGPU. This is a real, full powered external GPU connected to the iMac over the relatively fast Thunderbolt 3 bus. You can buy different eGPUs at various speeds, but will generally enable you to do everything on your third monitor that you can do on the first two. This is how an eGPU ...

actually your Macbook Pro does not support more than 1 5k display. just check the resolution and get back to me.

SwitchResX will let you rename your monitors. You can download a free 10 day trial of it to do so. To address your root problem though, try the free terminal tool I wrote, displayplacer, that lets describe your monitor layout as a terminal command. I then use BetterTouchTool to execute these profiles via hotkeys. I have the same issue as you, when I plug in ...

pmset is the terminal command to display all things sleep on OSX. man pmset shows you how to use the binary, pmset -g shows you the current settings. It is possible to restore pmset to defaults by using the following commands (whilst sleep setting defaults differ from Mac to Mac, but apparently Apple have usefully made the numerical value that refers to the ...

From your observations it sounds like you have a temperature problem with your MacBook Pro. The system makes the CPU sleep when it detects a temperature problem - this what makes it appear as if kernel_task consumes all the CPU time (it actually doesn't). Usually this is due to either: (a) fan problems, (b) blocked vents or (c) lack of cooling paste. I ...

Since you're a JavaScript programmer and you need to see your SVGs in a browser there are two potential solutions. First, you can use the chrome dev tools to simulate a non HiDPI (Retina Display) screen in the browser. Or you can use the EasyRes app to quickly switch the resolution of your entire display. Solution 1 Steps to view websites as different ...

The best one that I've found, after a lot of searching, is Brightness Control: https://www.splasm.com/brightnesscontrol/index.html It's really small, free, simple to use, and the only one that reduces the brightness of the mouse cursor.

The 13" MacBook Pro 2019 supports 2 external monitors (in addition to the built-in monitor). If you want to connect more monitors, you'll external equipment such as a DisplayLink adapter or an eGPU for hooking up extra monitors.

It depends entirely on the monitor type. Some monitors support power delivery, some do not. You'll obviously want one that does support power delivery. Next comes the rated power - it differs from monitor to monitor how many watts of power they can delivery over the cable. The size of the battery in the laptop doesn't matter here - the only thing that ...

Yes, it's possible. Well, I can do it. MacBook Pro, MacOS 10.11, if that matters. Just find the spot where the lid sensor is, (about 1/3 from the bottom on the left edge of this laptop) and park a magnet on it. The internal display goes dark, but the external still displays, and the keyboard types, and both the trackpad and external pointing devices ...

You could use Affinity Designer, which has modes for working with regular resolutions and HiDPI screens. You can switch between them seamlessly. It even shows the aliasing occurring on regular resolutions, which is probably what you want to check for. Other than that, you’d have to attach a non-retina display to your Mac and just move everything there. It’s ...

The short answer: not possible. Please see an earlier answer for what’s possible. There is a mode called “Closed Clamshell Mode” but no way to shut down the internal monitor while open. I suggest you simply close the machine while using external keyboard and mouse/trackpad. This also makes sense because turning off the internal display on a laptop could ...
