bad window size/placement

I recently added a new monitor to my system (which has 3 monitors). Idea has started placing new windows at the right most edge of right monitor with the title bar offscreen.

This makes the window VERY difficult to reposition.
It also should NEVER happen - the app should be smart enough to keep the titlebar onscreen.

Also I sometimes see windows opening with ridiculously large width i.e > 32000.
Once again this should NEVER happen. I can fix width by editing the iws file but I should not have to.

I do not know how to fix the placement problem

Hello lordjoe,

What OS, and what version of IntelliJ IDEA are you using?

I recently added a new monitor to my system (which has 3 monitors).
Idea has started placing new windows at the right most edge of right
monitor with the title bar offscreen.

This makes the window VERY difficult to reposition. It also should
NEVER happen - the app should be smart enough to keep the titlebar
onscreen.

Also I sometimes see windows opening with ridiculously large width i.e

32000.


Once again this should NEVER happen. I can fix width by editing the
iws file but I should not have to.

I do not know how to fix the placement problem

Windows 2003 Server SP1 and Windows XP
Same project 2 different boxes
Idea 6.02 and 6.04 (I have problems updating the Server
2003 to 6.04
3 monitors on 2 cards
The system gets really confused when I add or remove monitors or
rearrange existing monitors -
For example moving a monitor from right to left position while the app is running or
changing the primary monitor
Because I am using a laptop which moves to and from work I rearrange monitors every time I go to a different system
