OSX Mavericks Issues

I run dual monitors and my Propane window has always been fixed in Monitor #2. After my update to the pre-release of OSX Mavericks, Propane always defaults to Monitor #1 in the same position. Propane no longer maintains its window assignment and position.

I realize that I am running a pre-release version, but I wanted to bring this behavior to your attention in case you hadn't heard of it yet or knew of a setting that might be causing it.

    Hey Andy,

    I run dual monitors and have been on Mavericks for ages now.

    I've found the window positioning to be completely flakey for just about every app right up until the GM.

    The GM is finally behaving for most apps, but not so for Propane, with its 10.6-compatible window handling.

    If I can't get a workaround in place then this is a problem that will have to wait until the next major release of Propane, which drops support for 10.6.

    Thanks, Trev. I appreciate the update. I mainly wanted to make sure that
    someone there knew about the issue, but I should have known you'd be two
    steps ahead.

    Any ballpark ETA on the next major Propane update?

    Hey Andy,

    I really hope my "on Mavericks for ages now" comment didn't come across as a condescending "I'm way ahead of you". I was just having an indirect moan about the ongoing quality issues I've been seeing.

    As for an ETA for v2, Propane's very first public release was Jan 7, 2009 and I've emotionally latched on to that day.

    I am looking for a workaround for the multi-monitor v1 issue though.

    No worries, Trevor. I understand and am honestly quite happy that you're
    "way ahead." Just another reason why I love Propane. :-)

    I'll sit tight until Jan. 7th. It's my daughter's 10th birthday so we'll
    have some cake to celebrate a successful Propane v2 launch. Can't wait to
    see what goodies are around the corner!


    P.S. If you're looking for some beta testers, I'm happy to help!
