Splash screen is on wrong monitor when closing application on the second screen
Closed, WontfixPublic


When the application was moved to the second screen the application remembers the position for next startup. The splash screen remains on the first screen but should then also appear on the second screen.

Event Timeline

The splash screen currently uses QDesktopWidget::screenGeometry (-1) to calculate the screen center. Providing -1 means the "default screen" as interpreted by Qt. It is not easily possible to change this because the splash screen is created as one of the first objects, long before there are things such as bundles or preferences or mementos.

I would not fix this behavior for these reasons:

  • complicated to fix properly
  • most of our users will have max. 2 monitors that are always visible to them --> the splash screen is visible during startup

Merging "applicazion modules" component with "ExtApp plugins"
