TC 73 Playback windows disappears

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Report ID: TC 73

OS: Windows 10 (1803)

Software: Sequencer

Version: 5.3.6

Issue: If you have the playback window running on a second monitor, close the sequencer then remove the 2nd monitor. When you reopen Sequencer this time (without 2nd monitor installed) and try to click on the playback window button it does nothing and the playback window seems to fail to appear anywhere. Was able to get the playback window to come back after attaching the 2nd monitor back again.

I believe there is a reset view or window command, maybe in the View menu.

I'll check next time I'm near my machine.

Just looked in the help file.

Window menu

Reset Window Layout.

This is normal for windows.  If you work with multiple monitors, and sometimes you will work with one less, then:

1. When working with multiple monitors, always move anything in the multiple monitor back to the main monitor before closing the program.  A program window will always remember the monitor and position it was last at before closing.

2. When you then bring up the application with only the main monitor, the application window will be  displaying the window on the main monitor.

As others have noted above, you can use Windows > Reset Window Layout to work around the issue.

However, this will be fixed in the next release. If a secondary monitor has been unplugged since the time the Sequencer was last run, any floating windows on the secondary monitor will be re-positioned onto one of the remaining monitors.
