MacOS Display Arrangement does not save.
With the latest release of Display Link, the Display Arrangement for a MacBook Air with 2 external monitors reverts back to default every time the machine is put to sleep or restarted.

Same issue here. It doesn't do it every restart, but often enough. M1 iMac 4 external displays. Using Targus USB-C Universal Quad 4K (QV4K) Docking Station (DOCK570USZ)

+1 for macbook pro 16 2020 with Dell D6000 running triple monitors (1x4k and 2xFHD). Desperately looking for this to work, don't want to shell out for the thunderbolt pluggable triple dock now.
Same behaviour here with MacMini M1 - you have to rearrange the monitors on restart. Any ideas on fixes?

I'm having the same issue, although with mine it forgets the arrangement randomly throughout the day, driving me crazy... Mac M1 mini with 2 30" Apple Cinema Displays...

It's been over 9 months. How has this not been fixed or even acknowledged?

Same issue here using MacBook Pro and Dell D6000 (times two to support 5 external displays). Incredibly frustrating.
This is a pain in the rear, I've been trying to solve this issue for a month now with no end. One the Mac goes to sleep, I have to rest the monitors back in place through system preference, security , screen, and a lot others step for it to set things back. I lose a lot of time when I step away.

Same problem for me, along with the Clamshell closed lid problem mentioned elsewhere. Everytime I reattach my universal dock, it has forgotten the arrangement I saved the last time and I have to redo it. Very frustrating because the three monitors end up in the completely wrong arrangement. :(
+1 super frustrating. I'm on v0.5.25
Haven't tested the Nov 2019 driver build - v0.5.25 didn't come with a clean uninstaller.
What is the status of this fix. Numerous problems with my D6000 and my new MacBook Air. My screens constantly rearrange and there is a mysterious extra forth screen showing in the Display settings. Apps will frequently "pop-up" on the fourth mysterious screen and I can only find them by unplugging the D6000 and then plugging it back in - note have to rearrange the screen after that process. The MacBook and D6000 are too expensive to have these issues. This should be solved by Apple/Displaylink ASAP.
This is exactly my issue - v0.5.25 on macOS 10.15.4 - have to rearrange my monitors every reboot. Two external monitors and built in MacBook Pro 13" display. It's not the end of the world but it is very annoying having to remember to do this each time.
