Title: Document window not visible
Post by: AXUN on March 15, 2017, 11:35:37 am
Hi there,
When I open a document, the window is not visible. Even for a new one. Properties windows, help are available but not my document.
I'm using scribus 1.4.6 on windows 10.
Thanks a lot
KM

hi axun

i assume an off screen position of the window.
there should be a file called 'scribus140.rc' somewhere in a location for preferences. on macos it's under: …user/library/preferences/scribus – i don't know where such stuff is stored under windows.
if you find this file, open it with a text editor and search for a line beginning with: '<MAINWINDOW' change the position values to something like 'YPOS="22" XPOS="5"', then start scribus and pray…

Or, on Windows, try using ALT+SPACE then pressing "M" then pressing any arrow key then moving the mouse (without clicking) to see if you can move your window back onto the screen.

You're welcome. Don't feel too bad, it's easy to forget this sort of thing if you don't use it much.
