I have a three screen system as shown below.
When opening v8i, Microstation's Primary application window appears on Display 1 and the Secondary application window appears on Display 2. I prefer the second window to be on the right of my first so I drag and maximize it to Display 3. After doing a Save Settings, and re-opening, Microstation still returns to the Primary = Display 1 and Secondary = Display 2. How do I force Secondary to Display 2 every time I open Microstation?
In CONNECT, the situation is even worse - Primary opens on Display 2, and Secondary opens on Display 1.
Again, I want Primary on Display 1 and Secondary on Display 3 for both v8i and CONNECT.
Is there anything I can do to achieve this, or do I have to keep dragging Microstation windows around before I start to work?
Windows 10: 10.0.18363
Another go at this - is it not possible to tell Microstation which display to use in a multi-display system?
you want quick and dirty fix ?
Swap your cables around... ( when only had 2 monitors this was easiest way)
with 3 monitors I had similar problem and IT guy disconnected all the cables and only plugged them back in one at a time and restarted each time then it worked the same for windows and all programs

i always thought it was a Windows thing to recall what monitor an application start on, but I've been wrong before.
Microstation 08.11.09.829Power GeoPak 08.11.09.878Power InRoads 08.11.07.615
Thanks for this - Lorys, I have used the "quick and dirty" fix successfully when I had a two monitor setup, but your 3 monitor fix is not working for me. Have tried multiple permutations (including disabling third party software that handles cursor transition through the gutter between monitors of varying resolution and Logitech Flow between my workstation and laptop).
Mary, I know Windows typically handles application > screen memory, but in our case the application is a single instance with two or three display outputs. Does Windows really know the difference between Microstation's two or three application windows? I keep thinking someone from Bentley knows how application windows are allocated to screens - someone who invented "Open Multiple Application Windows", way back when.
