For text processing and web pages, I like to rotate screens 90 degrees away from landscape into portrait mode.
Laptop screens can not be turned.

So instead of splitting the screen into 2 small screens I want one LONG TALL screen to see entire long pages of text split into 2 parts, side by side.

So I want a "virtual portrait mode"  for laptop wide screens. Any way to do that? Any software available?

So turn a 1600 x 900 screen into a virtual
800x1800 screen (width x height into width/2 x height*2)

Split the screen into 2 halves, but then snake the screen through the 2 screens. I.e, the upper half of the screen is in the left screen, the lower half in the right screen.

Line 1                 Line 801
Line 2                 Line 802
Line 3                 Line 803


Line 800               Line 1600

Hi!

I have moved this post to a new thread and moved to the software discussion, as it was unrelated to GridMove.

Although I can see quite some use on what you're saying, I honestly have no idea how to do it, maybe someone else will?

I've never used a laptop more than a few seconds since I'm lost without a standard keyboard.  So this idea may be stupid and/or impossible:

Would it be possible to stand the laptop on the desk on one edge so that the screen is in portrait mode, and attach a keyboard so you can still type?

Don't know about the other logistics but evidently somebody came up with the same idea I did in the past using a large hinge on a desktop monitor to tilt the screen 90 degrees instead of buying expensive monitors that were taller than wide. smiley

Hi,

it was a while ago but I had a Laptop that offered such function with their extended video driver software. I dont recall wich it was but it may be worth checking whether your extra software coming with your video card may offer the requested function.
