Feature Request: Child Windows and Dialogs Center on App, Not on Screen (7 Legacy Votes)

I would like to see Quicken dialogs open over the center of the main application, as opposed to center-screen as they appear to do now.

I have a wide monitor and like to run the program on half the screen (Win+Left or Win+Right, for those unaware) so I can have my web browser and email client open at the same time (e.g. when reconciling from an online statement).  Currently, any dialogs (e.g. paycheck details form) pop-up center-screen, straddling Quicken and my other open program(s).  I would like to see these windows and dialogs open over the main application instead.

Some more examples of the dialogs I am referring to: enter transaction dialog, print checks dialog, add account dialog, recategorize dialog, etc.

Thank you for your consideration.

    I think the OP made the case well.

    I'd like to see this implemented too. I often have multiple windows open when working with Quicken - a web browser and Excel are probably the most common, and I frequently have to move a Quicken pop-up window out of the way when it appears in the centre of the display.
