Restore Window Positions not working on split monitor

I have three monitors connected to my laptop, two of which use Splits (see attached image). I am trying to use the "Restore Window Positions" function to get around the well-known issue of windows being rearranged after waking from sleep. I have "save window positions" and "restore window positions" set to hotkeys; I am not even messing with triggers for now. Everything works perfectly when I press the "restore" hotkey, except whichever window was maximized to the lower split of monitor 3 will restore to that position for a fraction of a second, and then suddenly maximize to fill the entire monitor 3. This happens regardless of which application occupies that region, and does not occur for any application in any other split region. Any ideas?

Could you attach a copy of your troubleshooting info? I'll test with your exact monitor setup on Monday and see what I can find out :)
  • Open the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Click the "Copy to Clipboard" button
  • Paste the text into a text file (please don't paste the text directly into your reply, the formatting gets garbled and makes it difficult to parse)
  • Reply with the file attached

Thanks!

Thanks! Here you go. I also attached the detailed log, and cleared it right before I saved/restored the window positions. In the example I set up, I placed a MS Excel window in the problematic split area and "fake maximized" it to occupy the entire split region. I saved positions, moved a few windows around,and restored. The Excel window maximized to take up the whole monitor.

The restore starts at line 521 of the log. On line 539 and a few other places, there are operations called "RestoreWindow [MaximizeWindowIgnoreSplits]" that target the Excel application, and this is exactly the behavior I'm seeing. But beyond noticing those lines of text, I don't know how to prevent it from happening!

Thanks! I was able to reproduce this here as well and have added it to our list to fix up. We'll be sure to let you know when we've gotten it all fixed up.

Has there been any progress on this issue? I think I'm having the same problem...

When restoring windows that are maximized, they will first be placed correctly and then they will maximize to cover the entire screen. If I maximize a window by clicking the maximize button, then they will maximize correctly and only fill the appropriate split. If the windows aren't maximized, they will restore correctly.

This is still on our list to fix up but unfortunately I can't offer an ETA at the moment, sorry!
