Window Position Profiles Help

While the proposed fix does seem to work, I notice that it only works when I press the HotKey. IOW, it doesn't reposition the windows when they are initially opened. Any suggestions on how to remedy that problem?

They might not be triggering a Window Created message. If you change the Trigger Event in the rule to Window Focused, does that make any difference?

I'm not sure what you mean by "in the rule". I don't have a rule that I'm aware of. Remember I'm a newbie to DF.

@dbaldon: Could you provide some more details on what you've setup so far? The original discussion in this topic was regarding Trigger rules, so I assumed that's what you were already using, but if it's something different I'll split this off into a new topic.

Thanks!

Sorry about that. I'm using Window Position Profiles to control the placement of windows. I have one profile for in the office and another profile for at home. The computer is the same at both locations because it's a laptop but the monitors are different though the resolution is the same. I believe the x,y,w, and h values are the same between the two profiles. I initially assumed the values would be different which is the reason for two profiles.

Which is the better way to do this? Using Triggers or Window Position Profiles? What are the pros and cons of each approach? Or should I use both?

No worries! If the Window Position Profiles are working for you when you use the HotKey, that would be the way I would go. It is possible to automate the loading of them. Have you already created Monitor Profiles for the two setups?
