I have a macro that surveys me with input windows several times. Prior to Big Sur, that input window stayed in the same location on the screen. In KM 9.1 on Big Sur, each time the input window prompts, it shifts downward on the screen considerably with respect to the previous input prompt's location. I usually drag it to the top manually, when it gets too close to the bottom of the screen, for fear of permanently losing it.
I have noticed that one of my macros that prompts for user input always seems to be near the bottom of the screen. I drag it up, but it seems to go back to the bottom of the screen later on (maybe after app/computer restart).
I’ve been using this same macro for nearly a year prior to Big Sur, and the change in because of Big Sur. The macro has several prompts for my input, and each one shifts downward. It’s really annoying. Prior to Big Sur, each prompt appeared precision where the previous one did.
I have confirmed this is a change of behaviour in Big Sur, and reported it as a bug to Apple (FB8915183). Unfortunately, I cannot work around the bug until I know whether Apple considers this a bug and will fix it, or considers this a breaking change they have decided to make, otherwise if Apple fixes the bug, then it will produce the same misbehaviour in reverse.
The bug happens when:
A non-user-resizeable window
with a saved window location
is resized in code before being displayed
It affects Keyboard Maestro’s Alerts and Prompt For User Input windows.
