One program doesn´t remember its last saved window position and size, all others do it.

What do I wrong? I simply want to start my CAD application AutoCAD spreaded over three windows.I think, all of my other programs start at the position and the window size I closed it the last time. But AutoCAD doesnt. So I did the following according another post in the forum:

- Settings --> Function---> Custom Function-->Add Custom Function
- Give it a name "AutoCAD", Function Action: Manage Window
- moved the icon at the bottom to the AutoCAD Window to create the function automatically

- Setting-->Triggers-->Add-->Event:Window Created, Frequency:Always (tried also the other options and tried "Stop processing triggers if this one matches"
- Procees Filname-->Select Applikaton: acad.exe
- Actions-->Add-->Run Function-->AutoCAD (from the step above)-->ok

This procedure works for the main windows but also it has influence of the dialog windows inside AutoCAD. All these windows are shown now in the upper left corner of the left screen, every time I open it. How can I manage that inside the application nothing is influenced by Display Fusion. More easy it would be if AutoCAD could save the spreaded window position after closing down. As I said, this is the only program that doesn´t remember the last position automatically.

Hi Holger,

Could you send me over a screenshot of your Window Position Profile, with AutoCAD saved inside it?

Thanks!

Here is the file. Only AutoCAD is open. Hope it is the screenshot you wanted.

Hi Holger,

Thanks for sending that over. So you just want the main window moved when the profile loads? If so, let's start off by deleting the extra entries from AutoCAD in that profile. I'm guessing the "Autodesk AutoCAD 2021" is the main window, so you can leave that one.

Once that's done, can you try to load the profile manually through a key combination, and confirm for me if the main window does, or does not move?

Thanks!

Dear Owen, I think I tried it to do it too much complicated. After some attemts according your hints I tried it only with a trigger. As I first used it I didnt see the "Span Windows Across all Monitors" option under "Run action". Zhis works perfectly. But I don´t understand why AutoCAD is the only program that didn´t remember the window size from the last session...

Hi Holger,

Glad to hear you found a solution! I'm not too sure why it wasn't being trigger with a Position Profile, but I have a feeling the Window Text was changing on the main window, so it wasn't being detected.

Thanks!
