re: Have you ever used vertical (portrait mode) monitor? VIEW POST


I use vertical monitors for long console outputs mostly, or diff-ing files, that kind of thing. I almost always have a terminal window there rather than an editor or browser window.

Regarding using an editor on a vertical monitor: As a general rule, if you use horizontal monitors with split-pane view and you find yourself scrolling the editor panes vertically more than stretching them side to side, then you may find a vertical monitor setup more useful. Some files have longer lines, others have more lines, so the file type and content can make a difference as well.

Vertical monitors are also useful for capturing a vertical screenshot or screen recording, too.
