Connection window trapped offscreen

Peter11244 posted 1 year ago in General


I would like to report an issue I am having at present. Whenever I try to access the connections window in HeidiSQL it is trapped off-screen (as per image, window is not minimized)

I can right click and log into a session directly with the main window appearing on my screen as normal. Whenever I try to use the connection manager from the main window it does not appear and locks the window.

I use a multi-monitor setup so sometimes will use WinKey + Left or WinKey + Right to bring windows back onto an active screen, but the connection manager does not respond to this.

Current solution is to reinstall with an older version. Whenever I upgrade the issue reoccurs. Is there a way to reset the memory Heidi has of the window location?

Thanks, Peter

I highly guess that remembering the previous screen position is the cause. See this thread. I guess that happens first after plugging a second screen of your computer?

I'll try to add some check to it, which prevents the dialog from being displayed outside the screen.

Should be better in the next nightly build.

I hope that TForm.MakeFullyVisible is doing what I think it should. I only tested with a single-monitor setup and hacking registry settings for the previous position. See

I am updated and all seems good now. Thanks for the quick response and your work on Heidi in general.
