Tag hint window positioning error with multiple screens

Postby moodforaday » Sat Jun 14, 2014 3:59 pm

Hi! I'm using CintaNotes Pro 2.6.1 on Windows 7 32-bit with two monitors. CintaNotes runs on my secondary screen (to the right of the primary one), since it's oriented vertically and allows me to see more notes at a time.

In this setup, when I press F4 to add a tag, the tag "hint" window is not displayed next to the edit box, but away from it, on the primary screen. I have attached a screenshot.

This does not prevent me from using the tag hints, it's more of a cosmetic issue (and sometimes it's difficult to see the small tag hint so far away from the main CN window).

Thanks for the report!
Yes, seems to be a bug.

As soon as I get my hands on a second monitor I'll try to reproduce the issue, and if it's reproducible we'll fix it asap.
Thanks!

Thanks! If you're positioning the hint window manually in code, the problem might be in using the screen rectangle instead of the desktop rectangle to determine coordinates.

Wonderful, thank you! The hint is now displayed near the caret as expected, regardless of which screen the dialog box is on.
