So, my screens are Left=2, Right=1
I start MS on the left screen (=2)

ms 1.png (1×3 px, 419 KB)

and click Channel Label to open Channel View
ms 2a.png (1×3 px, 167 KB)

then I move the child(?) window to the right screen (=1)
ms 3.png (1×3 px, 278 KB)

after doing what I was to do I close the right window and later click the Ch. Label of some other channel. The child window opens on the right (=1) screen with a wrong size
ms 4.png (1×3 px, 213 KB)

and there is no way (known to me) to make it opening in a proper size. Except for exchanging the windows positions, so the parent(?) window has to be on the right (=1) screen and the child has to go to the left screen (=2)

and then it opens in the expected shape every time.
BUT then, if I close and reopen the app it opens like this:

Hope you can understand what I'm trying to show :-)

Do your screens have different sizes/resolutions?


No, two identical monitors 1920x1080 60HZ, one is on analog VGA and one on HDMI.

This is probably related: when I use "Open in window" on a layer for the second time the resulting window is stretched. Notice: I didn't use the second display this time.{F662225}
