Photoshop: Dialog window opens off screen (windows)

I'm running a script here, and a dialog window consistently opens with the base, off screen

Hi Colin,

Thanks for the screen shot. What OS are you running and what version of Photoshop (Help > System Info)? 

Thanks,
Hannah

Running Win 10 1709 (Build 16299.125)

Photoshop 19.0 20171103.r.190 2017/11/03: 1143799 x64

Ironically, the script is one written by one Jeffrey Tranberry!!!!

called cropAndStraightenBatch.jsx

However I've just spotted its dated 2008. I just downloaded it yesterday. But I'm guessing that may have an impact on the screen position as it is obviously written for old versions.

However it also happens at other times. Attached screen shot shows the Automate > Batch Browse result that I see

OK. I'll take a look today. For reference, the link to the script is here: CropAndStraightenBatch.jsx

Looks like you can resize the dialog (drag the top bar up and resize the explorer window) and it will retain the new window size next time it's invoked. Let me know if that's not the case for you. We have an update coming out in the near future which will provide a more modern explorer window, which will also help.
