I have the same setup . . . second monitor on top of my MBP. I solved the problem by unchecking “Displays have separate Spaces” in the Mission Control System Preferences.

Just so happens I that is the space that I have for a second monitor is on a stand above the screen of my MacBook Pro. So I had to position my second monitor to the left of my main monitor. I am then able to work on LiveCode in either monitor. The only thing I had to do was re-train my brain that moving my mouse left was actually moving it up to my second monitor. Now it is second nature.

>>> Anyone having problems with multiple monitors and LC? I’m running 9.6.1 - Mac. I have a feeling LC is confused because I like to connect and disconnect monitors from my MacBook Pro. (Even the MacOS sometimes gets confused.) But now LC is doing crazy things — even when no external monitors are connected. I’ll move the mouse to the top of a stack window, and ask for the Mouseloc and it will return something like "100,-60”. If I click a button in the middle of the stack, the click will register in an object the 60 pixels above that. It’s not always 60 — the wrongness changed as I move the stack around. Other times it works fine. I can’t find a pattern to set it off.
