msg box, and type
   set the loc of stack "revdocs" to the screenloc
(or ... to "500,500" whichever you find easier to type).

I suspect it won't be changed, because it's common to create and 
manipulate "invisible" windows by positioning them off-screen, and it

case where the user has switched from dual monitor to single monitor.
