Fix window position when opening program

CZonin
7 discussion posts
Hey,

First just wanted to say how useful this program has been! Recently started using it and it has replaced a number of separate programs I was using to achieve different functions.

The only issue i've been running into is that after my PC wakes up, a lot of programs will open up on different monitors, maximized, or in strange positions. I've set up a window position profile and have it tied to my monitor profiles, but it only works if those programs are already open or if I press the hotkey once I open them. Is there any way to have those programs open on a certain monitor/position as soon as they're opened?

Thanks!

Thanks for the kind words! To position windows when you open them, you'll want to use Trigger rules. Please see this guide for details: Working with Triggers

Hope that helps!

Ah okay just got some tiggers set up, thanks! I've gotten a few programs to work with triggers, but I can seem to get it to work for Steam. Steam runs in the background when closed so maybe it's not recognizing it as creating a window. I've tried using the events Window Created, Window Restored, and Window Focused but none seem to work. Any ideas?

Yeah, Steam doesn't work with them. It's only showing/hiding the same window, and there isn't an event we can capture for that
