Summary0004244: Std_SetAppearance always appears on a corner of the secondary monitor
DescriptionThe Std_SetAppearance tool produces a window with some options to change the appearance of a selected object. This window always appears on the upper left corner of a screen.

I have two screens, my left monitor is my secondary monitor, while my center-right monitor is my main monitor. When using Std_SetAppearance, or pressing Ctrl+D, this window appears always in the left monitor. Moreover, the window doesn't appear at regular height. It appears hidden in the smaller monitor's border; this window is barely visible in the screen so its title bar cannot be selected easily.

It seems the window created is a dockable window and not a proper window like the one shown by the Std_UnitsCalculator tool and other tools. Even when the Appearance window is docked, after it is closed and re-opened, it will still appear again in its corner position.

So, with this report, the idea is that the Appearance dialog is converted to a better window, so that it is displayed properly in the main screen when it is launched.

See the forum thread, Std_SetAppearance always appears on a corner of the secondary monitor.

Steps To Reproduce
  1. Open FreeCAD, create a new document.
  2. Create an object, for example, Part_Box, and select it.
  3. Launch the appearance tool from the menu, View -> Appearance or Ctrl+D.
  4. The dialog appears on my left, smaller monitor, not on my main monitor with the rest of the FreeCAD interface.

This report is not in the "Draft" project. It is in the general "FreeCAD" project, as it affects a standard tool (Std_SetAppearance).
