When using EvilLyrics with multiple monitors, it always starts up 1/2 way between both monitors.  Also, it doesn't remember it's screen position when you quit and start it again.

how about installing third monitor so evillyrics opens on the middle of the second? just joking Smiley ... i'll try to fix that ... but:

would some of you with multiple monitors send me your settings.txt file after you move your EL in the other monitor and close EvilLyrics? (don't open it again before you send that settings file)
and i would also need the info about your screen resolution

There is still a multi-monitor issue present in the 0.1.9 release, would love to get this fixed.

The monitor I use for EvilLyrics is left of my primary monitor, so the left coordinate definition is negative.  It seems that on load this is brought back up to 0, making the window appear on my primary monitor (which has a 0 left coordinate) instead of the monitor left of that which I closed it on.

Here's the settings portion after closing:
[Background] 7156507
[Top] 2445
[Left ] -20685
[Height] 12570
[Width] 6825
[MinimizeToTray] 1
[AlwaysOnTop] 0
[Compact] 0
[MinimizeOnClose] 0
[KeywordOnMain] 0
[WrapToolbar] 0

And immediately after re-opening:
[Background] 7156507
[Top] 2445
[Left ] 0
[Height] 12570
[Width] 6825
[MinimizeToTray] 1
[AlwaysOnTop] 0
[Compact] 0
[MinimizeOnClose] 0
[KeywordOnMain] 0
[WrapToolbar] 0

(Note:  I added a space to [Left ] labels to avoid the forums parsing it as a style tag)

In this setup it's a 1600x1200 monitor on the left (-1600, 0 as upper left), 1680x1050 as the primary (0, 0 as upper left)
