    Hi,

    I am using NoMachine on Windows to connect to a Red Hat box to use Cadence EDA software remotely.  I’m using floating window mode because it allows me to use three monitors effectively to organize my environment.  The issue I am having is that when I open a new schematic, or really any operation that pops up a new window, the window will either be completely hidden, and I need to right click it on the task bar and select “Move” and manually place it on the center of my screen or it will generate a new window that is placed at the center of all three of my monitors. This is somewhat problematic because my monitors are arranged in a triangle, which means that when small dialog boxes pop up, only a sliver of the window is visible on all three of my screens. This makes I’m spending 10x the amount of time that I really should be rearranging windows so that they’re actually visible on one of my screens.

    Is there an option on NoMachine to make new windows pop up directly centered on a specific monitor, or even better on the monitor that was last interacted with?  I have the option to use “remote desktop mode” and render the entire OS environment as a single window, but this defeats the purpose of using NoMachine because I surrender the ability to use Windows’ native window management and effective multi-monitor support. Thanks.

    I am using NoMachine workstation on Windows 10, version 5.0.53

    I believe the server on Red Hat is running NoMachine enterprise, version 5.053

    Hi.

    The issue I am having is that when I open a new schematic, or really any operation that pops up a new window, the window will either be completely hidden, and I need to right click it on the task bar and select “Move” and manually place it on the center of my screen or it will generate a new window that is placed at the center of all three of my monitors.

    For this issue we opened the following Trouble Report:

    There is no option at the moment. This is how NoMachine works right now, but you will be surely interested in the following Feature Request:
