    Updated today. Now I can't move digsites and artefact windows :( Unlocking doesn't work
  • #192
    yes I have the same issues, I can not move anything at all anymore :(

    Would not be so bad but they are now stuck on top of each other on top of my picture :(
  • #195
    same to me, tried everything and i cant move it

    I'm looking into this at the moment. Instead of resetting them to the top left, I will change them to reset to the center.

    I just updated to 1.6.3, and my Archy windows were only partially onscreen. I couldn't find a spot that would let me drag them, so I hit Reset Positions. Now they're even more off my screen. Any hints for me on this one please? Thanks in advance for any help.
