Hello,
I have a ATI Radeon HD 4850 x2 with 4 monitors on the display manager the displays will only line up to allow the cursor to move through each monitor. I have a display rack with 2 over 2 and would like more freedom to move between monitors. Any ideas?

I understood the question the first time, you don't seem to have tried the whole solution, or actually you may not have understood what I meant by "Puzzle".

If you set the display like I said moving around like a puzzle , you can catch hold of the monitor you want on top and put it there. 1X1 and Bottom 1X1
Here is a screen shot of it.

Did you try to pull and push the monitors around like a Puzzle?
The Display Manager allows you to shuffle the displays the way you want them to be set.
Try that out, it'll also allow you to keep changing the display order without having to keep unplugging the cables...:)

Thanks for your answer. The Display Manager does allow one to shuffle the display order without moving the cables as you stated However it will only allow for a staight line of displays making the cursor go through each monitor from side to side. What I am looking for is to be able to move the display to represent the 2 over 2 that they are actually set up as. This would allow the cursor to move more easily from one monitor to the next without having to go through unnessecary displays. Does this clarify my question a little better? Thank you

Thank you so much!
I was using the ATI Catalyst Control Center to adjust and was getting frustrated. Using the Windows settings (that I never tried using before) worked perfectly as you said.
Thanks again,
mark

Now I have to get used to this great display that I can move natural through

I would move the displays as you have done but then the displays would snap back to a slightly different configuration on the last blink and it would not ever stay in a 2 over 2 position. As soon as I used the windows there was no problem.
