Display 1 without Main screen is Computer Monitor;

Display 2 with Main screen is PD1560;

All Dispaly is adding Computer monitor and PD1560 as one display.

But if you set Computer monitor as the main display, then the option with  Main screen in GAOMON driver will be Computer Monitor.

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 tab.
  • 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.

So to make the cursor move on your PD1560, you should select Display 2.
