At this moment i'm working on Scribus using my laptop and an extra 22"
LCD on top of the laptop screen.
I have the screen layout, the same as my physical screens, that is, my
12" laptop below my 22" monitor.
So i put scribus on my 22" (up) and the rest o programs, open folders,
image previews, etc.... on the lower screen. (12")
Now... when i close Scribus unplug external monitor and restart Scribus,
it goes off screen, as if my external (UP) monitor still were connected.
I guess i dont need to clarify that this only happens with scribus and
absolutely not any other program, i mean Gimp, xnview, media player,
aimp, Firefox, Thunderbird, Openoffice... etc...
So i have to go, plug my monitor, activate it and drag Scribus(down) to
ALSO... when i do the described actions, i mean, close scribus, unplug
monitor but also use my laptop for other tasks, or just shut down and
come back to work next day, i plug my external monitor, start Scribus
and.... it goes to an imaginary lower screen. I mean, i have my 12"
laptop below my 22" monitor, so i have nothing under the laptop screen
(as if i could put a screen on my keyboard).
So, i have to change the screens layout, send my 22" below the 12" one
to see scribus screen and drag it to my 12" screen... then rearrange my
screens layout putting the 22" on top so i can start to work again.
I'm using 188.8.131.52 on Windows, and i insist, this behavior does not
exist with any othe program i use.
