Add an option to enable setting the front panel/ block diagram default opening position in VI Properties --> Window Appearance

Whenever I have a couple of VIs open I drag and arrange them around the screen (/screens) for better visibility. I think it would be great if there was a way to have LabVIEW open the VIs at a specified position on the screen and not necessarily the last open position. (This would be useful while development especially if one plans to share these VIs with others.)

The VI Windows don't open at the last open position. They open (or at least try to) at the position they were when they were saved. As long as no one saves them, they should keep opening there.

Try to take over the world!

Thats true. But while developing VIs I save them a lot of times. It would be nice if you could make code changes and save a VI x number of times without having to make sure that the VI is located at the correct screen location every time.

It could just be me but while coding especially using two screens I end up messing up the front panel and block diagram location a lot of times Smiley Happy

This idea seems to be somewhat related to this idea.  We need to uncouple the "edit mode" FP size from the "run mode" FP size
