Then you go on to complain about a behavior of the window re-sizes problem.
the only thing that bugs me is that when the arranger window is in a minimized state, all newly opened audio/midi/mediabay windows do not open nicely… they are always halfway off the screen.
No, you need to drag them over to the main window and SIZE them without maximizing. Once done, you don’t have to do it again. If you DO. Then you have corrupted preferences that can be fixed by several methods. None of which are fun.
to work with them i have to maximize them.
As soon as you do, any other window will go to its minimized state, which leads you back to the windowing problem you started with. Because as soon as you open another window, the previous window will go back to its minimized state…off the screen. The only way to fix it is to move the the minimized window.
- once i have maximized any event once before, the window retains its maximized state. - all newly opened event windows have to be adjusted before they can be properly edited.
I think you mean that they retain maximized state until you open a window, like VST Instrument rack, that don’t have a maximize state and it throws all the other windows to their minimal state.
