Introduction

Userful™ software appliance gives you the flexibility to mix and match displays of different sizes. This feature is available under Artistic Layout where you can specify the exact display "panel" size in inches or millimeters.

Measuring Display Size

Measuring Display

Display size is measured diagonally. To measure display panel size:

  1. Identify two points on your display panel, the first point will be one of the screen corners - this is the corner of the display panel, not the bezel. The second point will be the opposite corner from the first (for example, measure from the top left corner of the panel to the bottom right corner as shown in the image).
  2. Place and hold the end of your measuring tape down at the first corner of the screen, and extend the measuring tape until you reach the second corner.
  3. Read the mark on the tape at the point where the tape reaches the second corner. The number you see will be the size of your display.


To configure Display Panel Size, visit page Display Settings.
Note: Most measurement tapes measure in 16th of inches, but the value you need is in the decimals. To convert, simply divide the fraction in your measurement by 16 (e.g. 40 12/16” will be 40.75”)
