    Character Sheets & Main Menus: Always Reset to Center?

    Hello. Just started tinkering with FGU. I am using the D&D 4E ruleset.

    I've noticed that the character sheets and the main menu lists (those with buttons on right of screen) always seem to default back to the center location when i restart FG, regardless of where i move them or what size i set. All other window locations/sizes seem to be remembered between sessions. Is this a bug?

    Thanks,
    Shimrath.

    By design, the character selection window always appears in the center of the screen; and all the specific campaign record lists and sheets should remember last closed position.

    Some questions
    * Are you running any extensions?
    * Is there a windowstate.xml file in your campaign folder after closing FG?

    No extensions, but i did add a few mod files for 4E content (powers, feats, etc).
    There is a windowstate file there, yes.

    Thanks,

    Also, i started tinkering with the free version and it wasn't an issue.

    Then i realized i was running the free version (because i had my license keys mixed up) and upgraded to ultimate. That's when the problems started. It is also not remembering the state of the overall FG window.

    Thanks,
    Shimrath.

    * Is the windowstate.xml file being updated when you exit FG? (i.e. Last Modified Date on file changed)
    * Did you use the default installation directories for both the demo and the ultimate installation?

    I'm wondering if there is a permission issue or something going on; or if you have two installation directories causing issues.

    The windowstate file does appear to be updating.

    I'm pretty sure that both versions were installed in the default location, yes.

    Hmm, I just tested with the most recent build of FGU specifically on campaign list placement between sessions (Stories, NPCs, etc.), and it seems to be working as expected here.

    Can you try these steps?
    * Start FGU
    * Create a brand new CoreRPG campaign
    * Open Story list from sidebar
    * Move window to upper left corner
    * Close FGU completely
    * Restart FGU
    * Load the same campaign

    Where is the window after you follow those steps? (You can use Windows snip tool to get partial screenshot (Windows key + Shift + S))

    Thanks,

    It worked as it should, oddly enough. . .MW FG.jpg

    And now, miraculously, my 4E campaign is also acting as expected!
