Effect Dialog Window in Center of Screen (Resolved)

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to prevent the Effect Window from opening in the middle of the screen?

 

When I'm working on a particular section of an image, I have it in the center of the screen. Then I select an effect and the window opens right on top of where I'm working.

 

I know... you're going to tell me to just move the window. Well, silly me for expecting computer software to be smarter than that.

 

Thank you for your time,

Joe

And yet, you asked anyways.

Yep, because there are a lot of more knowledgeable people here who may have had the same issue. :)

No matter where the window opens, someone will complain. 
 

Saving the locations of all windows creates a technological challenge... 

  • Is the location still available? Maybe the screen is currently turned off for your multi-monitor setup. 
  • Did the resolution change?
  • Did the screen geometry change? 100% vs. 150%, etc. 

Since there is no way to keep everyone happy, Rick chooses to take the route with the least code changes: open new windows in the center of your workspace.

On the plugins created with OptionBasedLibrary it is allowed to remember the location where the window is displayed:
Menu -> Remember Location
Too bad the development of this library has been abandoned.
