Window sticking to corner of screen

Post by DoctorWeb »

The windows on the QnEasyWeb builder v8 are all sticking to the top left corner of my screen and wont move..
Its not happening for any other apps, Just QnEWB.
The blank window (from NEW in the App, no file loaded) is the same as all my old qwb files.

I checked with Version 7, that doesn't do it - but I cant use my old V7 qwb files as its all been automatically up-converted to V8.

I imagine this is something in the Prefs, but i cant see anything that would stick the windows like this.

Version 8 does not work any different than version 7.
But your configuration file may be corrupt.
If you use the same values as in version 7 then it will behave the same.

The window position is stored in 'Persistent_Options' in the preference file:

It is totally weird -
The V8 QWB file was made by opening the V7 created file, within v8, and then saving it, which seemed to make it a V8. It worked fine for a week.
Now not only does that V8 file not open at all, in ANY version, 7 or 8, but all other files I have opened in v* have 'Gone sticky' and wont move around my screen - they are firmly jammed in the top left corner. All other applications behave normally - the windows can be dragged anywhere and all behave s as normal.

It seemed to have happened with the update to V8.1.1.

I tried to see the 'persistent options' you directed me to but they dont seem to exist anywhere on my machine; Im wondering if the Operating System has corrupted in some way and is causing?

Ive just searched the entire drive and the configuration files seem to all be missing.
I have no folder of 'Application Support' in the Library at all.
I haven't been moving things around or tinkering with anything in the system, Im sure of that.
Ive done searches for the other folders that also do not appear.,

The apps have been put into files direct at the root of the HD, which may be the problem, ie not under USER at all.

Maybe the folder is hidden on your computer?
