4 Vfx viewers missing. Where are they?

Today i played a bit around with VFX.
I think I followed every small step that MiRai showed in his youtube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hntr1IE1Xgc&)

I play on 2 monitors. On the first 1 stack my 5 charakters in fullsize.
The second monitor shows the "dxnothing" in fullscreen. No problem till now.
I wanted to create 5 vfx viewers on the second screen, like a lookalike of the "Single monitor layout on \\.\DISPLAY1 (Swapping)"
Basing on the videoguide I also created the mapped key to turn the viewers on.
But when I turn it on only the big viewer appearse the 4 small ones don't.
Well, I checked it more than once and can't find the misstake ore the problem. Maybe you can help me.

Here the mapped key settings including the vfx viewers:

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Box xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
  <ObjectType>ISBoxer_Toolkit.Configs.KeyMaps.MappedKey</ObjectType>
  <SerializedObject>&lt;?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?&gt;
&lt;MappedKey xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"&gt;
  &lt;Name&gt;VFX Create&lt;/Name&gt;
  &lt;Combo&gt;
    &lt;Combo&gt;STRG+UMSCHALT+ALT+F1&lt;/Combo&gt;
    &lt;Modifiers&gt;Ctrl Shift Alt&lt;/Modifiers&gt;
    &lt;Key&gt;
      &lt;Key&gt;F1&lt;/Key&gt;
      &lt;Code&gt;59&lt;/Code&gt;
    &lt;/Key&gt;
  &lt;/Combo&gt;
  &lt;Steps&gt;
    &lt;Step&gt;
      &lt;Actions&gt;
        &lt;MappedKeyAction xsi:type="VideoFeedsAction"&gt;
          &lt;Action&gt;Add&lt;/Action&gt;
          &lt;Name&gt;is2&lt;/Name&gt;
          &lt;Target&gt;6&lt;/Target&gt;
          &lt;Rect&gt;
            &lt;Location&gt;
              &lt;X&gt;1920&lt;/X&gt;
              &lt;Y&gt;840&lt;/Y&gt;
            &lt;/Location&gt;
            &lt;Size&gt;
              &lt;Width&gt;420&lt;/Width&gt;
              &lt;Height&gt;210&lt;/Height&gt;
            &lt;/Size&gt;
            &lt;X&gt;1920&lt;/X&gt;
            &lt;Y&gt;840&lt;/Y&gt;
            &lt;Width&gt;420&lt;/Width&gt;
            &lt;Height&gt;210&lt;/Height&gt;
          &lt;/Rect&gt;
          &lt;UseFocusHotkey&gt;true&lt;/UseFocusHotkey&gt;
          &lt;MappedKey /&gt;
        &lt;/MappedKeyAction&gt;
        &lt;MappedKeyAction xsi:type="VideoFeedsAction"&gt;
          &lt;Action&gt;Add&lt;/Action&gt;
          &lt;Name&gt;is3&lt;/Name&gt;
          &lt;Target&gt;6&lt;/Target&gt;
          &lt;Rect&gt;
            &lt;Location&gt;
              &lt;X&gt;2340&lt;/X&gt;
              &lt;Y&gt;840&lt;/Y&gt;
            &lt;/Location&gt;
            &lt;Size&gt;
              &lt;Width&gt;420&lt;/Width&gt;
              &lt;Height&gt;210&lt;/Height&gt;
            &lt;/Size&gt;
            &lt;X&gt;2340&lt;/X&gt;
            &lt;Y&gt;840&lt;/Y&gt;
            &lt;Width&gt;420&lt;/Width&gt;
            &lt;Height&gt;210&lt;/Height&gt;
          &lt;/Rect&gt;
          &lt;UseFocusHotkey&gt;true&lt;/UseFocusHotkey&gt;
          &lt;MappedKey /&gt;
        &lt;/MappedKeyAction&gt;
        &lt;MappedKeyAction xsi:type="VideoFeedsAction"&gt;
          &lt;Action&gt;Add&lt;/Action&gt;
          &lt;Name&gt;is4&lt;/Name&gt;
          &lt;Target&gt;6&lt;/Target&gt;
          &lt;Rect&gt;
            &lt;Location&gt;
              &lt;X&gt;2760&lt;/X&gt;
              &lt;Y&gt;840&lt;/Y&gt;

Re: 4 Vfx viewers missing. Where are they?

Your small viewers are positioned off of the dxNothing window.

The X,Y position you put in is relative to the target, not your entire desktop. The larger viewer shows up because you have it anchored at 0,0 of the dxNothing window, but the rest start at 1920, which is beyond the width of the dxNothing region.

Also, I'm not entirely sure you're going to get a "nice" looking layout on your second display, seeing as it's 1680x1050 (the size of your dxNothing region is actually incorrect). With mis-matched aspect ratios, you're not going to be able to neatly fit 16:9 into 16:10 without some manual adjustments.
