SecureCRT 8.3 (beta 4), Build 1509 on macOS 10.13.1, session manager window

After every restart of SecureCRT the session manager window changes its position on the screen. This only applies for the macOS Version so far. On Windows the session manager window stays at the same screen position on subsequent application restarts.

This is only a cosmetically issue, but it would be nice to have it fixed in the final 8.3 release.

Kind Regards,
Frank

Hi Frank,

I am not really following. The default is for Session Manager to be in auto-hide mode. Is yours undocked and just "floating"?

If so, please post some screenshots illustrating the movement you are experiencing.

Hi Brenda,

on my setup the session manager is floating and is automatically shown on startup. On subsequent application starts the session manager window is moving to the lower right corner of the screen.

See files "Screenshot 2017-11-03 21.46.04.jpg" and "Screenshot 2017-11-03 21.46.55.jpg".

I would expect that the windows stays on the same position. The session manager window's geometry values in the Global.ini file also reflect this movement/change after each program start.

Btw. I am also missing the pinning icon in the title bar of the session manager window, see file "Screenshot 2017-11-03 21.36.16".

Regards,
Frank

Hi Frank,

I could not replicate the "moving Session Manager" issue, but have asked our developers to investigate.

Presently, there's no pin for SecureCRT/Mac.

That's provided by the libraries we use to build on Windows and, unfortunately, the libraries used on Mac do not supply the same graphics. Instead, to auto hide Session Manager, first it has to be docked (not floating). Then you choose Auto Hide Session Manager from the context menu shown when you right-click any object in Session Manager.

I have added this thread to a feature request in our product enhancement database to add an auto hide pin icon for the Session Manager. Should a future release of SecureCRT include this feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct email notification, send an email to support@vandyke.com and include "Feature Request - Forum Thread #12886" in the subject line or use this form from the support page of our website.

Hello Brenda,

would it be helpful, if I sent you my Global.ini by mail? Maybe something in there causes this problem? If you are interested, please send me a PN with your mail address.

Regards,
Frank
