Dialog boxes on multiple monitors keep repositioning themselves after each save

Question:
I am using multiple monitors, but the dialog boxes keep repositioning themselves after each save. This also happens if I set my far left monitor as my primary monitor. Resetting registry did not help either. Can you suggest a solution?

Answer:
This kind of issue has been reported only by users who use AMD (former ATI) architecture graphic cards. If you are using AMD’s graphic card, there are some settings you can try to adjust.
Open the HydraVision tab under graphic card's "Engine Control Center", go to the Desktop Manager selection and deselect "Enable Dialog Repositioning". Depending on the AMD graphic drivers that are installed, “Catalyst Control Center” may need to be opened to find these menus to disable the "Enable Dialog Repositioning" featurepart of Tekla Structures functionality that is maintained and owned by Trimble Solutions and that is included in the Tekla Structures installation
