Description

Keywords: Matrox, graphics, driver, Qt, qtconfig, project, navigator, ProjNav, Proj, Nav

Urgency: Standard

Problem Description:
When using ISE 8.1i GUIs, the window sizes and positions are displayed incorrectly each time I open the GUI.

Solution

This issue has only been seen in computers with Matrox graphics cards. The drivers cause issues with the way windows are displayed each time an application is opened. To work around this issue, set the following registry key to 0:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Matrox\PowerDesk\Version6\WindowControl\SaveRestoreAppWndPos
