Windows size is not remembered if using snap feature

When using Windows snap feature (i.e. moving the Lr windows to e.g. the right side of the screen so it fills half the screen automatically), the windows size and position is not remembered between restarts. After restarting the Lr windows has the size and position it had before using the snap feature.

This is also true when using snap and then resizing the windows. I have a 32:9 monitor and use the "secondary" display as second window on the left side filling up about 1/3 of the screen. The mayin windows fills the right 2/3s of the screen. I do this by doing a snap to the right screen border to fully utilize the screen height (the window takes the right half of the screen now) and then move the left border of the Lr main windows to enlarge it to 2/3.

And this I do every time I start Lr... which gets annoying to be honest.

 

Manually resizing the windows without using snap is remembered. Also the full screen snap (moving the window to the top screen border so it automatically takes the full screen) is remembered.

 

I kindly ask to fix this.

Sorry, got something wrong. Even when manually resizing the window, the position is not remembered, only the size. The main window always starts centered. Seems that only full screen snap is working as intended.

Hi, 

After using the Snap feature, I manually changed Lightroom Classic window size and position. It was retained after restarting.
Could you please provide us with the step-by-step instruction to reproduce the issue?

Thanks,

Sunil

Sorry, I was not clear with my description. The issue arises if you use the snap feature, regardless if resizing the window after that (important: by resizing here I mean moving a windows border, which is not at the screen edge, in a way that the window still snaps to the other screen edges). If you manually change the position then the window is not snapped anymore, which works as I also wrote.

 

Steps to reproduce:

1) Start Lr

2) Remember the current windows size and position (not snapped)

3) Snap window to right screen border > window fills right half screen

4) OPTIONAL: resize the windows by moving the left Lr window border (the issue is there if you do this or not)

5) Rememeber the current windows size and position

6) Close Lr

7) Open Lr

 

The last window position and size (step 5) is NOT restored. Lr restores to the size and position of the windows before the snapping (step 2).

In addition the Secondary window is even worse, as it cannot be snapped at all. It only can be manually resized and positioned. It would be really, really great, if the Secondary windows could also be snapped (and would remember that). This would make it possible to use the entire screen for both windows. I think this would help everybody with a 21:9 or 32:9 monitor or multiple monitors.

I have the exact same problem since a long time. At least since the upgrade to Windows 11.

 

The second Window is super annoying as well.

 

I am on a 49" monitor and the usage without the window position being remembered is super annoying.
