Calibre 6.6.0 edit metadata window

Upgraded from 6.5.0 to 6.6.0 and edit metadata window doesn't remembers size and position, opening with different size and location every time I try to edit.
Any ideas?

It has deliberately been changed not to remember window position, because of a Qt issue with remembering window positions on multimonitor setups (https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=349236). As for size that is indeed a bug fixed in the next release.

Calibre 6.6 Metadata editor window size

With the new 6.6 update for Calibre (Windows 10) the metadata editor always opens at nearly full screen size. Previously the editor remembered the previous size instead of defaulting to this big size and having to resize the window. Is there a new setting where I can change it back to the previous behavior or is it a bug in the new version?

Thank you for clarifying the problem. So that means I'll have to stay with 6.5.0 until the window size AND position are fixed.

But now we have a new bug. Can this please be fixed so it remembers size and position?

Most people do not have multiple monitors. So why do the majority have to suffer because of them?

Most? In the tech Industry, finding 'Singles' was getting rare. The most I saw on a singe system was 6 (it was a demo room). Even Laptop users add # 2 when they sit at their desk.
For a while, I used my old 4:3 in Portait (for the Preview pane) along with the regular 22" HD (edit window)

Hip, hip, hooray!

Now waiting for the position fix, as normal users (those not working in the tech industry) do not have multiple monitors.

I suspect you will wait a long time. Kovid has given no indication that he will back out that change.

FWIW: all of I and my wife, my 2 sons and their partners, and my older brother and sister have 2 screens. Four of us are over 70.

The only reason I don't have a second screen set up is because my desk is too small.
