I usually leave editmenus set to true on my development stacks while I'm
working on them. That way the menu stays in the stack window on OS X
just as it is on a PC. You do lose the ability to use keyboard menu
shortcuts, but the advantages of doing layout while the menu is visible,
and the permanancy of the IDE menus makes that a small tradeoff.
I think you're stuck with the script editor menu change, but that
doesn't bother me much.
