Find/Replace window position (multiple monitors)

Hi, is it possible to remember the position of the “Find / Replace” window for each monitor?
Sometimes I have more than 2 monitors, when I moves NP++ to another monitor and run “Find / Replace”, I always have to look for this window :)
Not sure what this means.
Maybe you mean …remember the position of the “Find / Replace” window for each monitor setup
Thus when you have 1 monitor and you invoke Find, the window will appear in a certain fixed place (that you assign by moving it there when this 1 monitor setup is active).
When you have 2 monitors and you invoke Find, the window will appear in a different certain fixed place (that you assign by moving it there when this 2 monitor setup is active).
Is that the kind of thing you mean?
The general assumption here is that you have a laptop and a docking station with multiple monitors, and sometimes you use the laptop standalone…

It could be confusing with many windows open. I have a 3 monitor setup and tested with Notepad++ on the left monitor and the Find window on the right monitor, this is what is saved to config.xml:
<GUIConfig name="AppPosition" x="-1920" y="49" width="1111" height="921" isMaximized="no" /> <GUIConfig name="FindWindowPosition" left="3236" top="15" right="3825" bottom="378" />
AppPositionis Notepad++ window and
FindWindowPositionis the Find window. They act like separate windows instead of parent/child related windows.
An idea might be to have a optional setting to ignore
FindWindowPositionand have the Find window open at
Feature Requests can be submitted to Github
have a optional setting to ignore FindWindowPosition and have the Find window open at AppPosition instead
Not all that useful IMO, as this would open the Find window each time at the upper-left corner of the N++ main window, covering what’s underneath (transparency setting not really a solution).

Not sure what you are implying here. Are you saying, for example, that a child should always open centered on the parent? This is ridiculous for N++ as centered on the parent would be right over the text I’m trying to work with. Ugh.
IMO the base functionality is fine for this in N++.
N++ has no knowledge of how many monitors you have, and I don’t think N++ devs would spend time on adding code that did know about number of monitors.

I don’t know how to do this, but it would be helpful if I could open a search window on that monitor where NP ++ is currently open :)

You can’t do it with Notepad++ out of the box, but a script could be written to do something about it. I don’t have a need for this myself, so I can’t invest the time to write such a script, sorry.
