Extended desktop sizing layout wrong

2017-09-19, 16:40 PM

I have an X1 carbon sitting below an external monitor. The monitor is about 2x the size of the laptop screen and runs at 1920 x 1080 resolution. The default configuration for the Thinkpad is 2560 x 1440 at 200%. 


Because of this, the layout for selecting displays makes the top monitor look to be half the size of the laptop, although it is physically 2x. This of course throws off mouse moving between the 2 and creates some real craziness when i use Synergy to move mouse between this setup and my mac.


The real issue is the X1 200% magnification. If i cut the resolution in half and the reduce size to 100% all my text looks poor.


Anyone have a solution?
