[RRgraphix] TL.rev stack screws up menus and doesn't put them back

My screenRect is 0,0,1600,1000
My screenLoc is 800,500

My upper left screen corner (where my menu should be) is at 367,43

You have the script set to (item 3 of screenRect) 1600/2=800 which is  
at the center of my screen. That is where the menubar gets put after  
running your script in "Tool Bars". This may work on your screen due  
to your screen size but that won't work on other screens.

The other item to RESTORE the toolbar is set to 800,500 which is my  
screen center. That is not where it was before your stack loaded.
  It would be better BEFORE moving someone's menus to capture there  
locations first then restore them on quitting and or in a button

on preOpenStack
global oldrevMenuBar, oldrevToolBar
put the loc of stack "revMenuBar" into oldrevMenuBar
put the loc of stack "revToolBar" into oldrevToolBar
end preOpenStack

on mouseUp
global oldrevMenuBar, oldrevToolBar
   -- put item 3 of the screenRect into WID
   -- put item 4 of the screenRect into HITE
   set the lockscreen to true
   -- move stack "revMenuBar" to (WID/2), 40
   -- move stack "revTools" to (WID/2), (HITE/2)
   set the loc of stack "revMenuBar" to oldrevMenuBar
   set the loc of stack "renToolBar" to oldrevToolBar
   set the lockscreen to false
  end mouseUp
