Shades Feature Request

Multiple monitors

  • Status: Open


It would be cool to have the ability to control the brightness across multiple monitors. I use two screens and have to toggle two sliders to obtain the same shade on both of them.

Indeed, this app was recommended by different site cause it is able to control the brightness of a second screen using target display mode. However on OSX 10.11.5 i do see a icon from the second screen and it works. But i cant use the slider in the top menu which controls the second screen. SO i need to go to the pref pane each time

Hi guys,

Very nice app, i like the feature that we can control each screen on its own.

But on the other hand: I have two screens linked on a Mac (capsule), but the position of the icons are switched (the left icon control the right screen vice versa), is there a fix to that?

All the best,

Yes, icons are switched L/R from monitor outputs...

And would also love 1 slider to control 2 external monitors.
