Description Owen Savill 2012-02-15 06:53:01 UTC
Open a database document
Open an already existing Form

The Form always opens at the left hand side of the display.

I am using a laptop with a dual head configuration. The external screen is to the left of the laptop. The graphics card is nVidia and driver are the latest nVidia driver. (I cannot comment on Nouveaux.) The desktop environment is KDE 4 with 3D effects switched on.

Regardless of which display the main LibO application is running in the Form window always appears at the left hand edge of the laptop's internal screen.

At first it appears to be going to display as expected. (The Form window I have is almost square being about 1000px by 800px.) But then it moves itself to the left hand edge of the screen and becomes tall and thin (about 600px by 100px).
