Recently we have upgraded Sage CRM to Sage 2020 R2 on our system. All functionality was working fine, but the summary screen’s buttons alignment was disturbed. Whenever we opened the summary screen for any entity’s record in the Internet Explorer browser, the buttons as well as the Action buttons alignment used to get disturbed. The only way we to fix this were by refreshing the page, only then the alignment was proper. You can refer the below screenshot for your reference:

We tried fixing the bug with below tips but no luck:

• Cleared browser cache
• Removed the site from compatibility view
• Unchecked ‘Display intranet sites in Compatibility View
• Restarted internet explorer

Even after applying above fixes, the alignment was set properly only when you refresh the pages. We also checked with google chrome but it is working fine with proper alignment in google chrome.
