Glance supports multiple display configurations. The Glance tutorial includes steps to help you properly configure your displays. The supported configurations are detailed further below.
Note that Glance can also be used with a projector.
Fully Supported Display Configurations
Fully supported display configurations are ideal as they are compatible with all Glance features.
Setups where displays are to the immediate right and/or left of your device's display are fully supported:
In addition, Glance 8.12 introduced the support of display(s) above the camera equipped device:
For the best experience, align your displays in a grid pattern:
Partially Supported Display Configurations
Partially supported configurations are represented here:
When using a partially supported configuration, Glance will ignore displays marked with an "X".
Tip for inverted pyramid setup
As indicated above, the inverted pyramid arrangement is not supported at the moment. To workaround this limitation, you may align your notebook with one of the displays.
Adjusting Vertical Display Responsiveness
Angle of the laptop clamshell, distance between top and bottom displays and head pitch may affect how Glance determines if you are facing the top or bottom display. These setup specific variables may require the adjustment of the Vertical Display Responsiveness setting found in the Settings menu.
Increase this value if Glance fails to detect when your face is aligned with the top display. This may be the case if one of the following occurs while you face the top display:
Decrease this value if Glance thinks that you are facing the top display when you are not. This may be the case if one of the following occurs while you face the bottom display:
Glance will work optimally if the camera equipped display is positioned in front of the user.
In addition, it is recommended to keep other displays immediately next to the center one, so that Glance can properly detect you as you are using your device. These additional displays should remain within a 45 degree head motion in order for Glance to be able to function properly.
Recommended Screen Arrangement
Arrangements that are discouraged include those where the camera equipped display is not directly in front of the you, or where you need to turn your head a lot to look at your secondary monitor(s).
