Thanks Bernd for the tip. You set me on the right path. Kudos and High Fives coming your way!!!!!

What I ended up doing was opening the stack script from the Project Browser. In there, the oauth2 stack height and cancel button locations are set via script. I simply added an appropriate amount that I needed to get the stack's height and cancel button where needed and viola, no more scroll bar or cut off auth screen. BRILLIANT! My change lasts between launches as well as when I built the standalone without modification to the app bundle.

I'll post in the forums the details on what I changed if anyone is interested.

Thanks again Bernd!!!!

If you want to make them permanent you would have to change the write permissions for that file in the app bundle on a Mac (Windows ??) and save your changes from the Script Editor.
