Window Placement and Workspace Saving Flawed

I think the way Nuendo handles windows on the Mac is flawed.
I have a 2 monitor setup. My main monitor is on the desk, my second monitor is on an arm above that because of my restricted space on the desk.
When I place Mixer, MediaBay, Pool, Video windows on my second (upper) monitor, I have to make sure none of them is moved to touch the edge of the screen. When one window touches the left or right edge and I save the Workspace, when recalling the workspace, the window is spawned on my first monitor again. It doesn’t save the position on the second monitor. When I only move the window 1px to the side so it doesn’t touch the edge of the screen, positions are saved correctly.
Second thing. I now changed the monitor setup a bit in that I moved where the 2 monitors touch. When I move up with the mouse and leave monitor 2, that the mouse appears actually closer on the upper monitor 2 to where it left monitor 1. A cosmetic change.
This should not have any effect on the saved workspace in my opinion. The position of a window should be saved like “monitor 2, X-pixel-offset, Y-pixel-offset”. But apparently this is not the case. Windows in a workspace are saved relativ to the main display. The effect of that is, that, because I moved the monitors a bit in the configuration, all windows now have the wrong position and are moved to the right. Some windows are half outside the view field now. Because it’s hard coded based on the first monitor. Not it’s position on the second monitor.
This is so annoying, all those little quirks. Maybe this could be improved in an update so the monitor and multi-monitor and workspace saving features work correctly without those small bugs.
