I am having trouble with applications reopening halfway off-screen on my second display in Mavericks.
Is this a bug? or a preferences/settings issue?
I like many apps to launch on the second display. I set this by: Dock > Options > Assign to Desktop on Display 2 This works, but apps always remember their maximized position a few inches from the left side of the display, effectively hiding half of the window off-screen.
If I drag the window back to the 0,0 position and then close it, Mavericks does not remember the position the next time a new window opens.
I've seen a few people discuss this issue, and most recommendations say to turn off 'Displays Have Separate Spaces' in Sys Pref > Mission Control. While this works, it basically brings settings back to pre-Mavericks conditions and breaks full-screen support.
From what I understand, now that each display has its own spaces, Mavericks is only acknowledging the dimensions of the largest display. If one display is smaller than other, it will cut windows off when you open them on the smaller display, because it remembers a window position as if it were opening on the largest display.
I can clarify if that doesn't make sense.
Mainly, I just want to know, is this a bug Apple has not fixed yet with Mavericks, or is there something I'm missing here? I am surprised more people are not talking about this if it is a bug.
