Amaya 10.1 (Sep 2 2008)
Windows XP

I worked at home on my laptop, using an external screen as an extended  
desktop, with the external screen to the right of my laptop.

I closed Amaya, and moved location, and plugged in another external  
screen, this time to the left of my notebook.

I started up Amaya, and did a File Open. The Dialogue box was clearly open  
(according to how Amaya was behaving) but was nowhere to be seen. I  
discovered that it was placed to the right of my notebook screen, where  
there was no physical screen, so I couldn't reach it.

(Hint to others who get this problem: do Alt-space, select Move, and then  
use the arrow keys to bring it onto a physical screen).

Best wishes,

Steven Pemberton
