Dialogue boxes hiding behind main Window

PostTue Sep 14, 2021 9:19 pm

I keep getting this problem, for instance I went to export a project archive and the archive options box is hidden, I can alt tab to show it's there but it disappears the moment I click on it. Seems to happen almost all the time since 17.3.1.
I've unplugged my third monitor, there was a time when things would show up there. 2nd monitor is for scopes and the dialogue box wasn't to be found there either. Any suggestions?

I can report similar experiences.
Also timecode window gets lost behind when switching tabs.
On W10 task manager can be “always on top” and it always is.
GPU-Z (?) is the same.
I have noticed since 17.3.? that the GUI setup has become less reliable.
Maybe I have created conflict by having my left monitor as W10 main window but right monitor as DaVinci main window?

Drives me absolutely crazy. I hate non-modal dialogue boxes that you can't move. If an OS system box is behind a Resolve box, you can't get to it. Ideally, both would be movable all the time. This is particularly frustrating when (in my case) I export .SC and .EDL files after auto-scene-cutting a flattened file on the Media Page. God help you if the OS file window falls behind the scene-cut window.

Something else which I've noticed since 17.3.1 is that if it needs to open an Explorer window to select a file or folder it can now take minutes just to bring that up, I thought it had crashed. Happens consistently with Relink Proxy Media.
