FIle Browser window comes up hidden in Windows if ChiTuBox window maximized

Doug Fisher 2019-10-15 1405

The file open or the file save dialog box come up hidden behind the ChiTuBox window if the ChiTuBox window is maximized.

The only way to find it is to click and drag or take it out of maximized mode.

    Hi, Does this refer to this kind of pop-up window?

    No, it refers to the Windows file browser window. Used for "File open" and "Write file"

    It happens for me for save project and save as, the dialog doesn't show when chitubox is maximized, alt-tab doesn't work, the only way I found to make it appear is to press control alt delete, then clicking cancel, the dialog is somehow brought back to the front.

    Also tried after upgrading to win 10 1909, same issue.

    It started when the software switched to the black theme I think.

    The Photon workshop software from anycubic also suffers from the same symptoms also since they switched to a black theme

    I see the same effect with Chitubox beta and Windows 10 Home 10.0
    - When the Chitubox window is maximized, all file dialogs are hidden and Alt-Tab does not work anymore. Only way to the file dialog is pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del
    - When Chitubox is not maximized, all file dialogs open correctly in front of Chitubox window
    - Happens on laptop and laptop+external monitor
