So if you run sidecar while using Astropad you can do a few cool tricks. One of them is using Astropad a secondary display. Another is having perfect mac resolution to iPad resolution. It’s easy too!
- Open Sidecar on your mac.
1(b). Then I recommend starting out in mirror mode and going into the display settings and optimize for Sidecar. That way you will have the resolution perfect to full screen on your ipad to mac ratio.
After that then go into Astropad open it up if it’s not already running in the background
2(b). and make sure you go to Move & Zoom option and make sure its at 100% just to make sure resolution is correct.
Then at the menu bar, display side car settings you can, USE AS SEPERATE DISPLAY.
3(b). Now if you ever need to use that screen you can just go into Astropad Move & Zoom setting and select the screen you want. Or just toggle back mirror mode.
and in astropad this is where u go
So I will put this image in as well to show u how to optimize for ipad screen to mac screen resolution ratio.
Also note that if you drag this menu bar thing that I have my selected with my astro-mouse on, on to what screen you are using, the new windows will pop up on that screen.
if u want to make things even easier you can download Magnet only $.99 unless u can think of a free version and then you can use keyboard shortcuts to switch things from display to display.
