1.8.6 Main Window forgets positioning on Quit / Launch

Recommended Posts

  • 1 month later...

just adding to this, I completely uninstalled (Appcleaner) and reinstalled Designer 1.8.6, and the problem persists on a fresh install, and after resetting the studio. It doesn't manifest in Photo or Publisher:

Here's what it looks like on launch:

Photo and Publisher both launch correctly, with the application centred under the menubar on the menubar monitor. Designer is obviously getting the size of the window correct, but it's got what appears to be a hardcoded left edge position to the left side of the workspace.

I would suspect this is because if it was tested on a multi-display system, those tests were done with "separate spaces for each display" enabled, which prevents windows spanning displays, and as such a hardcoded left edge of zero would theoretically work if the app was launched or moved to the centre display.

Extra followup: in Separated mode, everything will jump back to the central (menubar) display, but no matter how you rearrange things - palettes etc, if you disable separated mode, it all goes back to one window, and leaps to the left edge again.

There's definitely something about the behaviour of Designer's windows management that does not work the same as Photo or Publisher.
