  1. Orientation: select Landscape. This is to keep the computer monitor not upside down.
  2. Multiple displays: keep ‘Extend these displays’ which means Extend mode.

  2. Resolution: set as ‘1920 x 1080’ which is the resolution of PD1560.

Fourthly, to set ‘Rotate’ as 180 degrees

  • Please turn PD1560 for 180° to make Express Keys at the right-hand side.
  • Open the GAOMON driver interface and click ‘Work Area’ from the top title menu.
  • Pay attention to Select Current Display. It is to select a screen between your computer and PD1560 as Current Display where your cursor will move on while you drawing on PD1560.

Because PD1560 is a screen tablet. Most of screen tablet users hope the cursor only moves on the desktop of PD1560 when drawing on it. So to make the cursor only moves on PD1560, you should select the option who represents PD1560 as the current display.

But there are three options (Display 1, Display 2, All Display), which one represents PD1560? ‘MainDislay‘ appended with one of the options will help you to figure out PD1560.

which display is PD1560

Remember that in the third section (To set the computer monitor not flipped), the computer monitor is the main display. Thus ‘Display 1’ appends with MainDisplay is the computer monitor.  While ‘Display 2’ is PD1560. We then select ‘Display 2’ as Current Display.

Please note, if you had set PD1560 as the main display, you, therefore, should select the one appended with ‘MainDisplay’ as ‘Current Display’.

  • Do as the screenshot shows.

  5. Click ‘Apply’ to save changes.
