'Open' window hidden (2 monitors)

Recommended Posts

The position of the "Open..." dialog window is placed behind the studio panels and therefore invisible in some circumstance, e.g. when using two monitors. That means when opening a document it currently needs some workaround, e.g. moving panels first. (–> all 3 apps)

This behavior of the "Open..." is similar to "New..." but with a relevant difference: While the "New..." dialog can get moved AND maintains its custom position (e.g. on 2nd screen) the "Open..." dialog may be moved, too, but does not remember its custom position.

Furthermore especially in this situation (opened "Open..." dialog") the command "Toggle UI" is not accessible, too; it is greyed out as long the "Open..." dialog is opened, and this way additionally prevents to access the "Open..." window.

Since the "New..." dialog seems to save its position in a preference file ...
( ~/Library/Application Support/Affinity Publisher/newdocumentpanelstate.dat )


... therefore I assume for the 'Open...' dialog a bug which might be 'by design' but possibly not purposefully, intentionally.

Even, maybe for both dialog windows their placement behind studio panels has no use and is not intended at all?
