"Done" popup in lower right corner: movable to mid screen?

Hi

Since a few versions, the popup that is displayed for some jobs when they are done (Modify EPUB for example) is now displayed in the lower right corner. I would prefer to have it pop up in the middle of the screen, as I don't really keep track of the corners of my screen due to poor eyesight; I only do so when I specifically put something there myself.

Is it possible to have the popup appear centered, as it did before? If there's a setting somewhere, I'm obviously missing it...

@Katsunami - strictly speaking they're not popups, they're notifications to which you can respond when you're ready to do so. The old pop-ups interrupted whatever you were doing and required an immediate response.

Perhaps there could an option to make a sound when there's a notification awaiting a response

Ah, OK. I understand. It's not that I won't see the popup but I have a hard time hitting specific, small targets in the lower left and right corner of the screen. (Don't start me on the tiny icons used by programs such as Photoshop and Gimp, on the bottom of their palettes...)

Maybe a tweak in the Tweaks section, setting X and Y coordinates, with -1 for both meaning "center" would be possible?

Silence! I kill you!

No, but seriously. My computer is always as silent as possible (including fan noise), except when playing music. I never use sounds.

regarding sounds, you and me both - the only sound I have is a buzz when I hit Num or Caps lock - I foolishly bought a keyboard with no leds
