Arnold render window will resize itself and jumps across screens

After I've situated all my windows when I click render, the render window will resize itself and move across the screen strewn out between two screens .. and that causes a lag.  Is there any way we can lock the renderer window keep it from resizing and moving every time because it becomes problematic on multiple levels.

 

 

Regards, John

Having this issue too - I position the window carefully in a corner so it won't overlap other important windows, but when I start rendering, the window widens up and covers up the windows next to it (which is usually my main Maya window.)

No versions? no OS?

Hi @johnstifter 

 

That sounds frustrating! @Stephen.Blair is this something you have encountered before?

 

I'm not seeing any specific Arnold UI lock settings but i could be off base! I would always recommend, if you aren't on the latest version of Arnold (MtoA 5.3.3.1), to download that and see if the issue persists.

Hi @hagen.deloss ! I have what I hope is some more helpful detail for you. It happens when IPR is watching for changes, and I change a shader in Hypershade by connecting a new node to one of the shader's ports, triggering a rerender and also resizing the window.
