#673 Dialogs are placed off-screen when monitor is disconnected

Interface (176)

Dialogs stay on second display, even when disconnected. Can't target with alt+tab (or win+tab). There is a problem to reach these dialogs without second display conntected, They should open in the active Geany window. Tested on Windows 7 Professional 64b and Windows XP Prefessional 32b. Maybe it is a GTK issue? Not sure.

Geany 0.20

    I'm working on a clean way to handle this, suggestions welcome.

    This annoying bug is still present.

    I understand you create the find dialog and then move to the stored position.

    Is it possible to check before move if the position is within visible area and if not put on the middle of the current desktop where geany is running.

    on Windows as a current solution I press ALT+SPACE then the system-popup dialog of the find dialog comes up on the edge of the screen.
    I select move and press the arrow key. Keep pressing until the window appear in the visible area :-)
    I don't know if this bug is present on Linux.
