Hi Tiemo,

You can always revert to the 'emulated' look and feel by changing the theme
of the stack from "native" to "legacy".
There's no drop-down in the property inspector, so you'll have to use the
message box.

HTH,

Jan Schenkel.

 Hello,
 
 I am migrating an old LC 2-6 stack to LC 8.1.1 In this stack  I resize and
arrange all objects by script when resizing the window.
 
 First experience was, that on Windows everything worked the  same as in LC
6,  all objects looked fine and aligned when resizing.
 
 On OS X 10.11 I am still fiddling around since some days to  get all
objects  aligned. The nasty thing is, that I now have lots of code,  which I
have to  differentiate between Win and Mac, where I had all the same  code
for  resizing up to now in LC 6.
 
 One of the tiny, nasty things is, that the rect of an option  button now
can  be different, as the visible rect of the button. Only at the  default
button  height of 22 both are congruent. I know, this is a new thing  of the
underlying OS X drawing routines. But since I can't test it,  I have no
idea,  what happens going back on a 10.8 system or to Sierra, are  there the
same  graphic objects, or do I have to differentiate for  10.8,10.9,..?
 
 What is more annoying is that the height of the stack isn't  anymore the
same  as the parameter newHeight of the resizeStack handler (what  it was
before on  OS X and still is on Windows). Again lots more of code
differentiation.
 
 Another weird issue is that the video appears 26 pixel lower  as the player
object is located (26 is the height of my stack menubar).
 Now I have to
 place the player object more to top by the height of the  menubar. Since I
couldn't create a recipie in a test stack for this strange  issue, I didn't
reported this as a bug. Again here I feel very unsafe if  this hard coded
workaround to place the player object more to top, as the  video has to
appear, works on all OS X platforms.
 
 Now I feel very uncomfortable with LC 8.1.1 shortly before  release.
 (Unfortunatly I discovered these resizing anomalies on OS X  pretty late in
my project) 
 
 Do you have any similar experiences? Any recommendations?
 
 Tiemo
