MD not using OS monitor settings

This seems to be specific to Macs. Not sure if it is OS version (Ventura) related or chip (Mac ARM silicon). Mac allows you to tell the apps which screen to open on. This worked fine under Intel based Monterey system I had. Not that I'm on an ARM based Ventura system it will not remember which monitor I have set it to open on. This very annoying as it keeps switching to my small laptop monitor vs my bigger monitors.

    Hi Bash,
    We are sorry to hear about the problem you have encountered.

    Please ensure you are running the latest version Moneydance 2022.6 (4097), first. This is a free upgrade for you!

    Then you could navigate to Extensions->Manage Extensions and install the Toolbox (v.1057)

    Launch the Toolbox and select Update Mode

    Finally choose Menu: General Tools. Update Functions-> Reset Window Display Settings and restart Moneydance!

    I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions or need more assistance.

    That didn’t fix the issue. Every time the computer wakes up it goes back to the laptop screen instead of the monitor set in the menu.
