Obsidian note windows recall neither screen location nor Space on macOS with dual monitors

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open Obsidian and open a window in each desktop Space, moving to different places on two monitors.
  2. Quit Obsidian.
  3. Open Obsidian again.

Expected result

Obsidian note windows repopulate on their correct Spaces at the correct screen location.

Actual result

  • Note windows all repopulate on Space from which Obsidian was launched, not the Spaces they occupied last load.
  • Note windows all repopulate on screen which last held the main Obsidian window.
  • If note windows were on current Space and screen last load, they populate in the correct screen position; otherwise they populate at the last screen position recorded on this screen.

I am not sure I understand you.
Download and reinstall obsidian. Post a screen recording of what happens with the sandbox vault.
