the numeric window keep positioned in the middle of my screen,each time I start the Modeler.....;

I usually have my modeling window reduced , and on the left I open the statistcs, the numeric, and layers...it happened before also with 7,5... impossible to put it back on the left.... I mean yes I put it back each time I restart the modeler..... any clue... ?:confused:

Sorry, this isn't a solution to your problem, just me showing allegiance that you aren't alone. Well, my problem is similar anyway. I have 2 monitors, and everytime I set them up, I have my LW8 stretched (not maxed) to fill one screen, with my panel windows placed on the other screen.

But whenever I boot up LW again, it fills one screen (with even a bit hiding behind the taskbar!), and all the panel windows scrunch up into the LW window.

Having set up Photoshop to run in a similar way, and having that work perfectly whenever I boot it up shows that it COULD be accomplished in LW, but I'm not sure if it's a setting I am missing, or just the way it's coded... (I'm not that great with the finer details of Windows programming I'm afraid...)

So no help I'm afraid, but a joint cry in the wilderness for some changes to make LW more user friendly perhaps....;)

I know this has been reported before, even before 7.5 came out I think. Many of us were complaining about windows not remembering positions on 2 monitor setups.
I was hoping that this was finally fixed with [8] but unfortunately it wasn't. Though they added a little plugin to Layout that's supposed to save window positions (but that's for layout only).
It's realy annoying draging windows to second monitor every time I start LW. :(

Hervé: maybe you could manualy edit LWM8.cfg and see it there is an entry that positions numeric window on screen. I know there are some "windowshape" entries in there but I'm not sure which one is for numeric window...

for me modeler remembers panels positions but Layout only forgets the Scene Editor and the properties panel...
