Off-center screen views!

Not applicable
Each time I open either the View Map of Layout Book the image, though saved and updated in the center of the screen, is always shifted off screen to the right. Is there any way to have these images open in the middle of the screen where they're meant to be without using "zoom extents" or "fit to window" each time. I do this approximately 50 times a day.

I am experiencing the same issue.
AC25 v. 5005 w/ MEP, Cadimage, Twinmotion 2021 using AC from AC6.0, 2.7 GHz 12-Core Intel Xeon E5 (OS X 12.2.1 Monterey), AMD FirePro D700 6GB, SSD, Artlantis 2019, Adobe CC. Used AC on both platforms.

Layouts are like Viewpoint in that they store the current Zoom factor.
So when you open a Layout it will restore the Zoom factor that was used the last time you worked on that Layout.
If you go through all Layouts and do a Fit in Window on all of them, then save the file and reopen it, you will find that all of them retained the Fit in Window zoom factor and they now show the whole Layout.

But this also means that if you zoomed in on a Layout and leave it, the next time you go back to it, it will still be in that zoomed in state.
