On a Mac, if you have two monitors (or more I suppose), and you open a script editor window, it initially opens on the same screen as your LiveCode IDE; on the "main screen” as determined by the OS. After that I typically move the script editor window to the second monitor. I find that if the top of the script editor window is higher than the tool bar on the main screen, I get this hot spot offset problem. Once I move the window downward on the second monitor it goes away. I ought to have reported it, but I’ve gotten to where I automatically just move the window down to avoid the problem.
