|Summary||0007267: Add preference to present/position windows in center of screen|
|Description||Most of the dialogs Ardour are positioned at the mouse cursor when first presented.|
This is not always the behaviour that people want or expect IMO and propose there be an option to use GTK_WIN_POS_CENTER as the default.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
One example where the current behavior of opening a window centered on the mouse pointer is problematic is: when you open a new window (create new tracks window for example) by using a keyboard shortcut. You might have your mouse pointer in a position that results the new window opening part of it outside the screen and invisible.
Centering new windows at the real center of the screen is a much better default behaviour IMHO.
