eWriter positions in registry and multiple monitors

Unread post by Horst_Reichert_PN » Tue Jun 30, 2020 11:07 am

As there is currently no forum for Help+Manual 8 bugs, I post this issue here...

Set your project eWriter output to store position in registry.
Export your project to eWriter.
In my case I export to an embedded .exe
Start the help project.
On first start it opens fine with the windows settings height/width set within the project.
On my dual monitor system this is the primary screen.
Maximize the window.
Reduce again from maximized state.
Everithing is OK as supposed
Move the window to the secondary screen and maximize.
Close the window.
Open again, the window opens on the second screen maximized.
Click at the reduce button again, the size is not the original one but some minimum size.

p.s.
The help page starts maximized only on the monitor where the viewer .exe is placed e.g. in explorer

Hi Horst,

Thanks for reporting this. Our developers are looking into it.

It actually doesn't have anything to do with multiple monitors. The problem is that if the eWriter viewer starts maximized after storing its position in the Registry it does not have or find the correct dimensions for the smaller size.
