Steps To ReproduceConnect 2 screens to the PC.
Open the project with the added video and open the window with the video so that it is on the second screen.

Which Window Manager are you using?

I just tried with mate and xfce, and in both cases the WM prevents the window to be moved to out-of-bounds coordinates.

Can you bring it back by selecting xjadeo in the WM's task-bar, right-click -> move ?

Yes. I just tried this method - it works. Thank :)

But I did not drag the window to the coordinates. I dragged him to the second screen.

This is largely a WM issue. It happens with other software too. For example, I have a 3 monitor setup. Several applications (VLC, Rack, atril) will start on the monitor/screen they last appeared on, regardless of whether the screen is connected or powered on. I can access them by some wierd tricks, but I can't force them to appear on the correct screen. Rack has a related issue, actually: it puts up notifications on the "default screen" even if it itself is on a different screen.

"I dragged him to the second screen."

Screen coordinates just extend. When I connect a second screen the whole desktop now has a size 3840 x 1080 (two times 1920 in width).
I've moved the video monitor to the 2nd (right) screen, coordinates are 2300 x 100.
Later when re-starting with a single screen only the window is moved there. Which is off-screen. WM usually prevents this. but apparently not in your case :(

This might be considered a bug in xjadeo , really. Except other ardour windows are likely also affected.

ok If this does not apply to Ardor, what should I do? Should I close this bug myself? Or is one of the administrators making this decision?

Our policy is that developers and others who are not the initial bug reporter may mark a bug resolved, but only the reporter can mark it closed, and we encourage people to do that.

We also have an automated process that marks bugs closed in various circumstances (e.g. after a long period of time).

So, I would encourage you/ask you to mark this as closed (I will mark it resolved first)
