This bug appears when the main screen is on the right side. Switching main window to the left side is now working properly. To achive this we have 2 options:

  1. Settings -> Display -> Star icon on left screen enter image description here

  2. or use terminal and add --primary tag to specific monitor $ xrandr --output HDMI-A-0 --scale 1.33x1.33 --primary --output DisplayPort-1 --pos 2554x0
