I have two monitors, I prefer to write code on primary monitor and view figures on secondary monitor. I have managed to make the newly generated figure display on secodary screen by setting properties of the root object in startup.m.
set(0, 'DefaultFigurePosition', [-1120, 538, 560, 420]); %make the new figure display on a second screen, hard-encode the positions
However, when I double-click a figure that was previously saved in .fig format in the file explorer, the figure would display on primary monoitor.
Is there any way can avoid this? Or, can I move all the figures on primary monitor to secondary monitor with their relative positions unchanged?

This could help, although normally the position is one of the properties that are stored in the fig file, so this cannot be applied directly.
