formula dialog box position

Kim 1 Reputation point

Is there a way to change where the dialog box pops up at when doing a formula? As of late, it pops up over the column letters, and I have to move it every single time, which is becoming quite annoying. Is there a setting somewhere I can update so that it's not always in my way? Example in picture provided. I'm needing to click column I to finish up my formula, and it's in my way every time. Didn't used to have this issue up until a month or so ago. Thanks!

    Hi, @Kim
    This is the design of the product. You can move the position of the dialog box, but you cannot change the default pop-up position of the dialog box.

    Bummer. I can move the dialog box, but that's my point. I have to stop what I'm doing every time and move the box. It slows me down significantly when I'm having to apply several formulas on multiple files, which is common in my position.
