A2+ Dialog Window moving out of Screen

Postby Christoph » Sun Apr 21, 2019 10:09 am

Hello,

yesterday I started to get myself an update on the A2+ Workbench (V0.4.17), and I'm quite impressed with the functionality. But I have always problems with dialog windows moving out of my screen (such as the window Constraint Properties). Is there something I can do against it?

Thank you in advance,

Christoph

Hi Christoph,
there has been the same problem several versions back and it seemed to be fixed. On my side, (LINUX MINT 18.3) the dialog positions keep constant and on screen.

There is a workaround for that problem.
Hit this button:

and this constraint tools dialog opens:

You can move this dialog around to your preferred place. It stays always on top of the application. This gives a master position for the subsequent constraint properties dialog. It will open at the same place.
