      on a two-monitor setup, a FileMaker window will slip out of the second monitor, becomes unusable by normal users

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      2-monitors, FileMaker will position a window at position/size of the latest opened file/window. Every now&then, a window is out of the 2. monitor, no way to move or resize it, when the title is over the monitor...

      Happened here right now when opened thje seedcode sql-demo...

      (an old error, was under V11 as well)

      Workaround

      create a script that moves the window to 0,0 (if one has access to the scripts)

          Thank you for your post.

          Can you provide me more information about your monitor setup?

          Is the secondary monitor on the left side or right side of the main monitor?  What is the screen resolution of each monitor?  If there is a different resolution, is the top of the monitor aligned with the top of the secondary monitor, or is the bottom of the monitor alighed with the bottom of the secondary monitor?  Any other information you can provide could be helpful.
