My Docks were all out of alignment

Until I noticed something

Sunday, February 18, 2018 by Chasbo | Discussion: Personal Computing

I've used Object Dock since 2005 and to me it is essential. Low and behold ALL my docks were suddenly out of alignment! Now I know how to fix them but that's a pain in the rear every time you load a dock you had all set up perfectly. Vertical and horizontal they were borked! So I fixed Alloy. Then Black Pixels. I wanted to use Sintrone so I was going about doing that when I noticed that the start panel was cut off on the left of that skin! Somehow or another my monitor setting had been messed with. I'm thinking it happened when I was re-arranging the power strip the monitor is plugged into yesterday. I was tidying up my desk area. The monitor went on and off a couple times in a row. 

So if anyone starts seeing things like docks being out of whack look at the monitor settings first.

Thanks for the information Chas. Will tuck it into one of the few brain cells I have that still work.

That will teach you not to tidy up.

Win 10. All updated. I've never has a problem with OD using Win 10. It was definitely the monitor. I just reset it and all was well.
