Window opens on other monitor.

Post by kcider » Thu Sep 06, 2018 1:10 pm

I have recently updated to ultracopier 1.1.4.1, but now I keep getting the 'overwrite' window popping up on my other screen.
Previously when I copied a file and needed to overwrite or change the name, then the pop up window would be in the middle of the screen I was using.
However since I started using 1.4.1 the window doesn't appear - instead it appears in the top left corner of my other screen/monitor.
Can you bring back the previous behaviour, as I am focused on the one screen so don't expect the ultracopier window to appear where I am not looking.
Cheers
Alan

No - I've not changed anything in Ultracopier options.
I'm fairly certain that I wouldn't have changed any windows options either.

I would NOT have ever thought there would be a option "Open Ultracopier window only at top left". Have you any ideas what to suggest?

Has anyone else ever had this issue?

Cheers
Alan

Try: save windows position into the interface option

I can't find such an option in the interface. Can you explain more.

The window always opens at the top left corner and never remembers the last position.

Actually I wouldn't want it to remember the last position, if I am working on monitor 2 and it last opened on monitor 1 and vice versa.

Prior to 1.1.4 ultracopier would always open in the centre. It always opened on the monitor I am using too.

Hi,

The problem is the following:
  • The windows manager decide where and how display the new created windows, is their work
  • Do this work my self will generated more bug, it's more work and more expensive software
  • Another windows manager like Kwin of KDE do the jobs and allow all feature for all software
  • The unique common feature is save the last position, after each user which their position save: 0% top 50% left, 50px bottom 20% right, ... and I can't add unique feature for unique user

Yes - that I understand. (windows persistence). All my other windows programs stay where they last opened.
But Ultracopier doesn't do that.
So if I drag the windows the away from top left, to right bottom right, it should open there next time...
But it doesn't, when it opens it opens back at the top left.
I'm still perplexed.
Cheers
