Default Monitors Rearranging

Every time my monitors are disconnected--either through removing the StarTech connection or restarting the Macbook Pro--I have to manually rearrange them when they reconnect. I'm not sure if there's a pattern to how they're reset each time. I've tried the latest DisplayLink drivers and the app with the same results. This wasn't always the case. I believe it started right after the initial version that fully supported Catalina. I suppose I can roll back to that. Anyone else having a similar issue?

I have this same issue. I always keep my monitors plugged in, but every time I wake my computer back up (Macbook Pro) the displays are completely rearranged. Very frustrating and annoying. Did you ever find a solution?

Hello,

Please run this script in the terminal as a command. It will reset display settings and restore display persistence. It should allow to save your screen layout settings.
*
Perform these actions only with 1 laptop display, do not attach any external monitors.
*
1. Download the file: https://www.displaylink.com/downloads/file?d=145
2. Run the file (it will give you an information that it is not authorized due to security).
3. If you see a message related to security Go to Security & Privacy -> General tab, choose: Allow App Store and identified developers.
4. Next to it you should have a popup message about our display persistence script.
5. It will open terminal after double-click and ask for the password.
6. Afterwards reboot your computer.

Best regards,
Katarzyna
