images opening on wrong display

Recommended Posts

For a year or so I was using AP with 3 displays; the main window on display 1 and the various palettes and things on the other monitors. I had to temporarily move to a situation where I had just one display. I've just moved back to using multiple displays and am having problems with how AP is functioning. When I first ran AP (after getting back to multiple monitors) it opened up partially on the second display and partially on display 1 so I moved it to display 1 and it has stayed there; no problem. The palettes open up on whichever monitor they were on when I closed AP, and in whatever position they were on the screen. But the images I open continue to open spread across both displays. How can I get them to open only on display 1, which is where the AP main window is?

I'm using Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit. This problem happens with AP ver 1.7.2 and 1.7.3.

This is what I see on display 1 when I open an image.

Hi ncJohn :)

Sorry to see this!

Please make sure that Affinity is closed, then open Windows Run (Windows key + R) then paste the following string and press OK:

%appdata%\Affinity\Photo\1.0\Settings

In the window that opens, select Window.xml and delete this, then relaunch Affinity - does this solve your issue?

I should add that after deleting Window.xml, when I relaunch AP the main window is not maximized as I left it; it's smaller but still on display 1.

I had to do some rearranging of my displays (still getting the multiple-display setup configured) and now AP is opening images on display 1. No idea why but thanks for your help.
