  1. Actually looking at it a bit further it seems to be related to the Primary monitor having Windows [10], "Display Settings > Scale and Layout" set to anything other then 100% (eg: 150% in my case).

    So set your Primary monitor to 150% and then start Affinity Photo v1.6 [or v1.7.x Beta], move the main window to a secondary monitor and toggle the, "View > Dock Tools". You should notice the main, "Tools" disappear.

    So the kind'a weird thing here is that the settings on the Primary monitor are effecting the secondary monitor(s).

    P.S. Let me know if this scenario is reproducible on your end ... if not I'll screen record.


  2. When you undock the Tools palette and move the main application window to a secondary monitor the Tool palette disappears.

    Easy to reproduce in v1.6.5.123 and the beta version v1.7.0.188

    1) Start the application

    2) View > [Uncheck] Dock Tools               ;Now you have a floating Tool bar.

    3) Move the main application window to a secondary monitor. ;Notice the Toolbar moves appropriately with it.

    4) Restart the application.

    5) Notice the main Toolbar is no longer visible on any monitor.    ;***BUG!!!

    P.S. If you move the Main application window back to the primary monitor and restart the application the Tool is visible again.

    This could in many cases be unexpected and a lot unpleasant, if you also moved the wrong objects.
    Rather, it would be advisable to specify which objects should be attached to the guide permanently, and then move with it.

    If you don't want the 'wrong' objects to move then you do not 'snap' them to the proposed, "Smart Guide".
