High resolution external monitor issues with Nomad

I am sure that I am missing something, but when I use Nomad on a Microsoft Surface with an external monitor attached, EOS on the external monitor is not utilizing the full screen. I do have the high resolution option enabled in the Shell. The display resolutions are 2160x1440 on the Surface display and 2560x1440 on the external monitor (Dell U2520D). If I disable the high resolution option in the Shell, the screen does then get fully utilized but at a seemingly lower resolution (1920x1080 if I were to guess), which leads me to believe that there is a limitation or configuration within EOS as to the max resolution it can drive on the external monitor. What is curious is that when I use a dual monitor setup with a desktop machine both screens are utilizing the higher resolution (ie 2560x1440) and the High Resolution option is selected in the Shell.

Here is an example of the monitor in question when connected to the Surface.

Thanks in advance for any guidance on what I have missed.

  • I'm running Nomad 3.01 on a 5120x1440 + 1920x1080 dual monitor setup with no issues with either default or high resolution. Whatever is happening is not a software limitation in Eos.

  • Thanks for the feedback. What you are saying seems to be somewhat consistent with what I am seeing, that resolutions above 1920x1080 may not be properly supported on the second monitor when in high resolution mode. Note that the monitor I display above is set for 2560x1440 and while I have not counted pixels, it appears that EOS is rendering a 1920x1080 window in High Def mode.
