  1. Thanks, I'll give it a look. However, if the developers of Photo change the format of the xml code, it may not work, so keeping a backup of WindowProfile.xml is the way go for now.
  2. Yes, I understand that and realize my post was a bit "pushy". This request is three pages long and was started in 2017. I'll have a look at how the config is saved now and make a backup script to restore it for now.
  3. Since the program obviously already saves the current configuration upon exiting and loads that configuration upon starting, all that's needed is code to "save configuration as" and "load configuration". Why is that so difficult? (✿◕‿◕✿)
  4. I typically use designer/photo on two monitors -- one with the main work window and the other monitor has my frequently used panels (windows) like assets, color, effects, layers...... But sometimes I'm watching do tasks where it's more convenient to run designer/photo on on monitor and view a tutorial or another app on the other monitor. The programs (designer/photo) obviously store the positions of all the panels upon program exit, so it wouldn't seem to be that hard to add a "save view" and "load view" process. Really disappointed this option doesn't exist!
  5. I had that problem previously, but I just successfully installed all three (Designer, Photo, and Publisher release) versions After the installs I uninstalled the betas.
  6. The email links I just received for the 414 designer beta is wrong -- it takes me to the photo 414 release.
  7. So I can start a new document in Publisher and then activate the Photo Persona, undock it's windows or panels and move them to the second monitor, and use it (Photo). It works fine. I still don't understand why it's so hard for it to use the configuration that Photo stores when I use it standalone, but will stop asking.
  8. Not sure I understand why there's no way to do it. It's using the same photo/designer app (exe) and I can manually undock the windows or panels and place them to the second monitor. Photo/Designer has a way of remembering the configuration, so it would seem that configuration could be accessed?
  9. I keep my Photo and Designer undocked windows on my second monitor. When I'm in Publisher and select say, the Photo persona, Photo opens with what looks like the default view (Studio panels or windows) docked to the main monitor on the right side of the app. Is there a way to have the Photo/Designer view come up like they are running them separately?
  10. Reboot first always works for me. Run as Administrator doesn't seem to matter. It happens with Photo, Designer, and Publisher.
  11. Thanks, I was beginning to think it was something wrong with my system. I didn't notice the problem before the beta and during the beta didn't use both monitors since the beta didn't seem to save my screen setting. It acts like the borders want to snap or stick to other windows (or merge with other windows.)
  12. Also, with many (maybe all) of the undocked windows such as "History", if I left click and hold a border to resize, it will start to move but "drops" off the mouse cursor. When I release the mouse button, the border pops to the spot I released the button, so it (app) knows where I tried to position the border. Does a similar thing when I click and drag in the blank area of the title bar to re-position a window.
  13. Just a guess... if you're using Windows, you may have to re-start (Windows) and try the install again.
  14. Have you downloaded and installed the latest version of Photo? I had the same problem but was using the latest Photo beta. Installed the latest non-beta release and it worked fine.
