Hey guys,
I was livestreaming yesterday using UNIFY and was trying to open up various plugins and instrument windows during the demonstration.
When streaming I use three monitor sources: BEHIND ME (sort of like a backdrop), IN FRONT (This is the main workflow screen), and another in front running DUET on an iPad where I can dock and monitor OBS.

What happens is that when I have UNIFY on my second screen and open a window it will launch the plugin window BEHIND me, so I turn around and drag it into the main workspace monitor area. When I close the plugin window and reopen it, it will still open behind me, so it seems it does not remember its last location.

I would love to see if there is a way to better manage this, as sometimes I forget something is popping up behind me in the moment and think something is not working properly, it gets crazy when I am live ;^)

 

Thanks for the amazing work you are doing. So glad to be a part of Guru Nation!

Best,
Simeon

I doubt this is the entire answer, but in Display Settings for the "BEHIND" monitor, is that monitor by any chance set to have "Make this my main display" checked for that one?

Terry,

I just tried this and that was the solution.
Thanks so much for the help.
Many times we are so close to things that you need a second pair of eyes on a situation to help point out the obvious.

 

Much appreciated,
Simeon
