Summary0021270: Lazarus IDE saves window left position to top and vise versa
DescriptionAfter existing IDE, check environmentoptions.xml for example SourceNotebook node or any other window position. Left and top are set to each other's values in xml:

        <WindowPlacement Value="RestoreWindowGeometry"/>
        <CustomPosition Left="122" Top="251" Width="962" Height="504"/>
        <WindowState Value="Normal"/>
        <Caption Value="SourceNotebook"/>

So after starting the IDE your window positions are messed up.

Lazarus 0.9.31 r35332 FPC 2.6.0 i386-win32-win32/win64
It seems that changes to SourceEditor window are not saved (change position of SoureEditor, quit Lazarus: no change in environmentoptions.xml), except when explicitely set via Tools -> Options -> Window.
To me it seems that Left and Top are not mixed up b.t.w.
Main IDE window, Messages and OI behave as expected.

Lazarus: 0.9.31 SVN rev: 35297 FPC: 2.6.1 i386-win32-win32/win64
Downloaded from Snapshots url

Below, xml nodes extracted from environmentoptions.xml before and after exiting Lazarus. I started with the first position and move messages window few pixels to right and exit Lazarus. Left is saved to top and top is saved to left.

        <WindowPlacement Value="RestoreWindowGeometry"/>
        <WindowState Value="Normal"/>
        <Visible Value="True"/>
        <Caption Value="Messages"/>
        <CustomPosition Left="250" Top="556" Width="699" Height="100"/>

        <WindowPlacement Value="RestoreWindowGeometry"/>
        <WindowState Value="Normal"/>
        <Visible Value="True"/>
        <Caption Value="Messages"/>
        <CustomPosition Left="556" Top="251" Width="698" Height="100"/>

Also note that sometimes Width and Height mixed as well.

I cannot reproduce that (note 56803) at all (r35332), I also cannot see any revision between 35979 and 35332 that would explain the difference between our observations.

Strange, here the source editor and messages windows opened always in a wrong place. I tried to bisect the revision causing it but then the problem disappeared completely. Now it works always correctly.

Try deleting your local Lazarus configuration. Does it help?

@Juha: does your Lazarus save the position of the SourceEditor window (see note 0056784)?
