I deleted The cache folder and upon WL8 startup the check Plug-ins dialogue box appeared and it went thorough the check and after it finished WL8 opened but the master section presets still opened on the first monitor.
I have a dual monitor setup with several PCs connected to a Dual DVI KVM switch. I have had this setup for many years and the PCs and WL versions have changed over the years from 3.0 to 8. WL has been on at least 2 of them and they have identical setups in case one PC dies I can keep everything going and not lose anything. This is the first time in those years that after I saved a master section preset that the plug-in window is opening on the wrong monitor. In fact all the master section presets plugin windows were opening on the wrong monitor
After this issue happened I wrote this post but I opened each preset and moved them back and save them all again. It took an hour or so but it worked so I thought I would just save the preset folder every so often so if this happens again I could just copy this folder back, but read on…
So I checked my other PC with WL 8 on it I opened WL8 and the same thing happened. I then copied all the master section presets from my first PC that I just fixed to the second PC and it did not fix this. The only way I found so far is to open all the presets move the windows and resave each and everyone again. So far I have not done this on my second PC. There needs to be a better solution.
Something in WL is causing all the plugin windows to open on the wrong monitor. So just copying working master section presets to another PC with WL8 on it does not work. After resaving the presets the time-stamp for each preset changed to the time I resaved them and they worked once again, but after copying those same working presets and opening them on the second PC the time stamp did not change but the windows opened to wrong monitor. Something in WL was globally overriding the setting for each master section preset.
In the past after WL was all setup I just copied the entire Preset folder from one PC to the other to get identical setups and it always worked. I have done this on previous versions of Wl with no issues until now. I know I never had to redo the presets
Thanks in advance
