Description Colin 2022-08-21 11:17:33 UTC
I have dual monitors and a calc file shortcut in my WIN10 Start-up folder.
The file is normally used on the second monitor which has a lower resolution than the primary screen.
It opens about 1cm off the top right corner of the screen thus obscuring the scroll bar and ribbon.
It does not overflow onto the primary screen and there is no "grabpoint" with which to manoeuvre it into position. All I can do is drag the bottom edge of the screen down a couple of pixels at which point it jumps to synchronise with the top right corner.
Another symptom is that even though it is now visible, all the popups that would normally ascend - filter panes etc., will popoff the screen and again become inoperable for the upper margins of that pane.
The CALC shortcut has four companions - other software - which behave as anticipated.
Turning of SKIA appears to resolve the issue

Steps to Reproduce:
Attach a second lower resolution monitor
Create a shortcut for a CALC file and place it in the start-up folder alongside some companions for other software
use CALC on the second screen
Save and Close the file
Close all active programmes
Shut down.
I also have autostart at 05:30 in the BIOS which is inactive at weekends but the issue persists - until I disable SKIA

Actual Results:
Display error

Expected Results:
No display error

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Comment 1 Colin 2022-08-24 05:12:42 UTC
Another insight:
Opening additional CALCs pushes their coordinates offscreen UNTIL the originally opened CALC is closed - at which point new CALC accesses will revert to their prior coordinates.

This may be a red herring. To activate the change to SKIA setup it's necessary to close LO.
As identified further down, the positioning rectifies itself once the "auto-opened" file is closed.
I would have been messing with the settings whilst the offending file was open so it's probable the temporary remediation was effected by me simply closing that file to deactivate SKIA.
Yes, I did reactivate SKIA almost immediately.
