Description alan.german 2022-08-19 01:19:30 UTC
On an updated installation to Version, on my dual-monitor setup, Writer is shut down from the secondary monitor where it is set to display at full height (portrait mode).  When re-opened, Writer loads on the primary monitor, in a smaller, landscape-mode window in the middle of the main display.  Earlier versions have reloaded the LibreOffice Window on the same monitor and at the same size as used previously.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Writer
2.Move window to secondary monitor
3.Resize window to full height of screen
4.Create and save a file
5.Close Writer
6.Open Writer

Actual Results:
Writer opens in small, landscape window on main monitor

Expected Results:
Writer should have opened in portrait mode on the secondary monitor

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

Additional Info:
Note that this only occurs with Version  This version number is not included in the drop-down meu for Versions (earliest affected) and "Submit Bug Report) will not accept the "unspecified" option in the menu.
