Title: Dual monitors with Scribus 1.4 RC6 on Windows XP Pro 64
Post by: Hans-Karl on November 14, 2011, 09:19:27 pm
Hello,

I'm french user of Scribus, habitually on Fedora for personal usage. But for my job, I'm on Windows. We are "traditionaly" working with InDesign, but I encourage a few people interested in using Scribus. Everything is going relatively well, but I have a small problem with my two monitors :
I open a document on the first monitor and I put the palettes on the second. I close Scribus and when I re-open, all the palettes are piled on the left.

Watch this :

I searched the archives, I found nothing except this thread :

and the answer :

What can I do to keep the palettes in their place ?
Is it a bug or not ?

Thank you for your attention,

Jean-Charles

hello jean-charles

i work on a single monitor, but scribus should remember the positions of the palettes.
i recommend to file a bug report on http://bugs.scribus.net (http://bugs.scribus.net) – usually they care about…

I also work on a single monitor before and I had no problem : the palettes remained in place.
On the other hand, I note that Inkscape does not have this problem with palettes open on the second monitor.

I will report the bug in Mantis.
