A form opens but I can't see it - why?|
After you open a form with Civil Site Design or Stringer Topo, reposition and then close it, the software 'remembers' the form position. When you next run the same command, the form will open up in the last saved position.
If you open a drawing that another designer has used (with a different monitor configuration) or you disconnect/rearrange your monitors, it could be that the form will display in a position where a monitor isn't attached (so you don't see the form).
So, how do I fix it?
