    doesn’t work, “on” is inactive. Is it only for paid version?

      It’s available on the free version too. Your issue would be with your second monitor not being recognised by DaVinci or something similar.

      If your second monitor has something open fullscreen the “on” button in resolve wont work. Close fullscreen application on second monitor and it will work.
