Affinity Designer V2.3.1 macOS - new window opens off-screen when MacBook not connected to an external monitor

Recommended Posts

If I have been using Affinity Designer 2 with an external monitor, opening a new window (or an external file / previous project) once you have disconnected from the monitor doesn't work properly. It doesn't appear. I've checked and the window is not minimised to the dock. It's visible if you show all the windows (see below). If you create a virtual desktop and drag it across to that, the issue remains.

Is there an easy way to reset this - it looks like it's trying to open on a monitor that's no longer connected?

Perhaps this known problem, which is marked as fixed in the 2.4 beta: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/search/&tags=AF-417

You could try the beta, and see if it shows the same problem for you. Or perhaps try a workaround in 2.3.1: Window > Zoom from the menu bar.
