How can we improve the newest version of Windward Studios Products?

Open the Tag Editor window in the center of the screen rather than below the cursor

Currently, when you double-click a tag to open the Tag Editor, the window is opened directly below the position of the cursor. That's fine if the tag is at the top of the window, but if it's near the bottom then the Tag Editor window is partially or even almost completely off the screen. I would prefer that the editor window open consistently in the center of the screen (or perhaps even better, optionally remember its last position and open there) so I don't have to drag the window to see its contents and so it appears consistently and reliably.

Currently, if you double-click a tag in the header or main body of a Word document, the Tag Editor window opens. This is not true in the footer. A workaround is to double-click the footer tag, then double-click somewhere on the doc outside the footer, but this is not user-friendly and is not consistent with the functionality in other parts of the document. A sample is attached that replicates the issue.

I understand this is due to limitations in Windows, but if this can stay on the radar as something to fix if it becomes possible to do so in the future, that would be great.

Hi Brent,

I just tested this request in Word 2016, Designer 16.2.0, Windows 10 and the Tag Editor was opened directly in the middle of the screen instead of towards the bottom. Perhaps this was fixed somewhere along the way! Thank you for your idea, and please submit any other suggestions you come up with.
