Companion bar keeps moving

Thats it. I have it on the right side of screen and it pops further right under my hot bars.

And often times the companion will not come out, when i dismount, or revive.

This happens to me, too. I place it on the bottom, middle right. After a certain loading event (haven't pinpointed what) the bar moves all the way to the right underneath my map. I have to go into interface editor and move it back.

old thread but have had this problem myself.... usually find it hidden under my minimap after have been in a group, wish it would stay where I put it. Refreshing ui seems to reset it back but rather annoying.

Necro thread!
But I'm STILL having this issue...
I'm a returning player, not played for around a year and this issue is still around O.o
I have gone through multiple installs of the game...a clean install of my OS due to upgrading parts and the companion box still likes to wonder. Sometimes I catch it doing it, and watch it slowly migrate across the screen

Is there a fix to this?

I have this problem all the time when I join a group for a Heroic/FP/Ops with my companion out. As soon as I leave the group my companion bar moves from where it should be.

All I can suggest is to click on the little + on you main hotbar that lets you either enter the layout editor or load a previously saved layout. Just click on the current layout and it's back where you had it.

Until BW fixes this (about another 4 years the way they get to things) this is the best option that I know of.

I have had this very same issue since they first introduced the customizable UI. Nearly every time I enter or exit a party/ops group the companion bar shifts to the far right of my screen after a loading screen or sometimes during combat. I can fix it by using "ctrl + U" to reset the UI or simply reloading my saved UI but it is annoying.

Thank you for discussing this as i was concerned about a Trojan etc when my companion bar began migrating from the right where i placed it back to the left across the bottom of my screen. Handy to know about, but why is it still happening?

I am going to necro this . . . because I can . . . and because it's STILL happening. Rather than start a new thread (just stupid), it's better to bring this one back to drive the point home that this issue - a VERY easily fixed issue - has been around since 2012 O.o

Whenever I am in a group, and I either leave their instance, zone, take a taxi, breathe or just pet my cat - the companion bar snaps to the center of the screen and I have to leave it there as long as I am in the group. When solo, I do not have this issue.

I did try an experiment. it appears to be only horizontal that this happens. Vertically it stays fine. I moved it vertically and it maintains that position, but horizontally it always resets dead center of the screen while I am in a group/party with anyone, regardless of amount of people in the party.

Is there a reason that this is not even being looked at or considered an issue by the devs?
