split window popup location, remember last and/or center on QW window not monitor

I'm on Windows 10, QW Premier, 27.1.21.17. When splitting a transaction I get a pop-up window to enter the splits. The pop-up appears to always be centered on screen. But I have a large monitor and will generally have quicken on one side and a statement or something on the other. The pop-up therefore blocks the other window, which has the info I need to enter the split.

My suggestion is to remember where I move the split window and the next time you open it, open it in that location. And/or center the pop-up on the quicken register that is open.

    Remembering size and location of windows when closed should be a tenant of good software design.

    Actually this happens with all windows (e.g. file / file ops / restore). Perhaps they all should remember. But the split is a really important one.

    Yes, Quicken should definitely remember window locations in relation to the Quicken main window.

    Yes, Quicken should definitely remember window locations in relation to the Quicken main window. For me, this becomes an issue when I'm reconciling my account. I have Quicken on the right half of the screen and my statement on the left. The reconcile popup windows (Details and the reconcile window itself) always appear in the center of the screen rather than in the center of the Quicken window. For the reconcile window, I always have to resize it to fit on the right side of the screen.

    With computers getting larger and higher res monitors, it is rude software development practice to always assume that your application is the only thing on-screen and has the full attention of the user. On my 32" 4K monitory, I typically want to have Quicken open in one quadrant, a web browser for paying bills in another, a Netflix video in another, and a spreadsheet in the other for miscellaneous calculations, etc. When the Quicken split window pops up covering the middle of the screen instead of middle of the Quicken window, it covers some of my video and leaving the mouse pointer well away from the dialog that it needs to be used in.
