  • BeyondCompare merge doesn't remember the screen it was on

    Basically every time I launch merge too it opens up on the 1st screen and I have to drag it to my 2nd larger screen every time.
    Is there any way to make it remember that merge should open on the last screen where the instance was closed, in my case - large 2nd screen?

    Beyond Compare 4 should remember the last screen it was used on. As a quick test, could you launch outside of version control using the main taskbar shortcut, then move to the larger screen, right click and Quit the application, then relaunch it. Did this remember the position?

    If so, does launching from version control then maintain this new position or the old one?

      I'm experiencing the same issue, regardless of if I launch BC4 from the Launchpad or via git.

      Launch BC4, move it to the second (larger) screen, maximize, right-click the icon and select Quit.

      Launch again, back on the first screen.

        Thanks. The maximize step is the key to reproducing the issue. I'll open a tracker entry to investigate. As a workaround, if you drag the window larger instead of using Maximize, it should remember the size and position.
