Summary0004583: DR doesn't remember location of child windows when placed on secondary monitor
DescriptionDR dosent initially remember location of surface inspector or Arbitrary transform child windows, takes about dozen or so 'open
Steps To ReproduceManually nuking the Darkradiant config folder, is the same as doing a full uninstall and install of a latter version =-

- C:\Users\b1k3rdude\AppData\Roaming\DarkRadiant

1. nuke the ablve folder
2. run DR and then open layers, surface and transform inspector windows.
3. move said windows to your prefered location on the desktop
4. close and reopen DR and then open the above windows again - I had to do this 5 times before the location of the transform inspector would stay where I left it.

I see you're using a dual monitor setup. Are you by any chance positioning the offending windows on the second screen?

Does the problem also occur when you're placing them on the screen where the DR main window is started on?

I am using dual monitor and yes the daughter windows are on the second screen.

I will position them on the main screen with a fresh copy of the user.xml and come back here with the results.

@Greebo, sorry I took so long to get around to this -

1. if I move the child windows around on the 1st screen, their locations are remembered.
2. if I move them to the second screen they are not
3. how ever if I keep moving them to the second screen eventually DR remembers.

Added hopefully more robust code to preserve window positions in git commit 4cfd853
