Readout Mode Window on Wrong Monitor in 2-Screen System
« on: 2018 September 18 16:14:38 »
I have a 2-monitor system with PI on the left (large) monitor. When I use Readout mode, the window appears on my laptop screen, against the left margin of the screen - I cannot get it to move to the same screen  as the rest of the program. Also, when I open a new tool, it opens on the laptop screen and I have to drag it to the correct monitor. Is there a setting to tell PI which monitor to open on?

What system are you using? On some systems, this is a 'feature' of a window manager itself, or Qt's choice of window class, which the window manager interprets.

This forum sure could use a sticky to instruct people how to provide useful bug reports... Long story short, be concise and informative; what versions of software (PI included), what system, what hardware, steps to reproduce and so on.
