Summary0000502: Main window menus lost after tile operation, 2020-08 release.
DescriptionMain screen: 1600x1200 HDMI. Secondary screen: 1920x1200 VGA, to the right of the main screen. Cin _not_ yet set up for dual display, basically the right display show a copy of the main display, right justified.
Load Cin, all looks good. Do "tile right". Almost all windows (not overlay) moved to the very right, just the border visible. Manually grab the just visible top of the window, drag it to the left back to the main screen. On the main window, the menus have become a black stripe, but if you move the mouse over there they are still active. Minimizing/maximizing make no difference.
Steps To ReproduceSee description.
TagsNo tags attached.

Reopening due to a related problem as reported by MatN (so we don't forget to check it out).
"The original BT502 issue is fixed, great. But I discovered a related one. On the same config as for issue 502, if I "tile right" to put all windows on the right screen, and then in the main Cin window open a menu item (say Window), the drop-down menu appears on the right side of the original left screen, and you have to move the mouse over there to use it. It works, but is not so nice. This might be related to the same issue that "show levels" had."

"is this intended?" --- it is just evolutionary as is closing the window method. Perhaps if a method that is universally applied can be implemented if it makes sense, but I am not sure it is worth the extra work.

Fix confirmed. Very quick, thanks guys.
I noticed that when I do "tile left" and then do "show overlay" or "show levels", those two go the the right display, is this intended?
I also noted I cannot close any of the normal 3 windows from the Window drop down menu, but have to click on the window itself (e.g. compositor). This was already so in the June version, so I guess this is intended behaviour.

A fix has been checked into GIT. We used different dimensions for testing because 1600x1200 and 1920x1200 were not available for us in Fedora. But this should work for any size and for Mint.

Confirmed by GG (had to wait for GG to try this on the desktop since my laptop only has 1 monitor obviously).
He will look at the code.
