I think this is one of those things that we have grown so used to not having it in LC that we automatically type it. Spend some time on other editors and you miss it in LC. Anyway, choose Edit > Options > Bracket Completion from the SE menubar to turn it off.

I have a small handler to reposition it, but ….. I figure that since the project browser doesn’t behave that way, it ought to be easy to just use the positioning code that it uses, for the editor window.

I haven’t noticed this myself but dod spend some time trying to replicate it. A few people have complained about it. Has it been reported? My suspicion if it is just a Mac issue would be the menubar height is somehow not being taken into account.
