Problems with Multiple Monitors

Hi Fred et al,
I use the following script to switch the monitor I wish to use for the revmenubar and revTools and then position pallets like my own rTools and tmAlign3. It is working quite nicely for me with my external monitor positioned above my MBP and “Displays have separate spaces” unchecked.
put the screenrects into tsr
if the number of lines of tsr = 2 then
if the left of stack revmenubar = item 1 of tsr then
set the left of stack revmenubar to item 1 of line 2 of tsr
set the top of stack revmenubar to item 2 of line 2 of tsr + 25
set the left of stack revmenubar to item 1 of tsr
set the top of stack revmenubar to item 2 of tsr + 25
set the top of stack revtools to the bottom of stack revMenuBar + 20
set the left of stack revTools to the left of stack revmenubar
set the top of stack rtools to the bottom of stack revMenuBar + 20
set the left of stack rTools to the right of stack revtools
set the left of stack tmAlign3 to the right of stack revMenubar
set the top of stack tmAlign3 to the top of stack revMenubar

>> 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.

I learned a lot (“desktopChanged", "the working screenrects,” difference between "the screenrect" and "the screenrects," etc.) I have a hunch, though, my problem may relate to stack RevMenubar and some accommodation the IDE makes for “the mouseV” depending on whether RevMenubar is showing or whether you have your own menubar or whether that screen has a menubar in it — I dunno. I’ve never understood how this works. I notice sometimes, though, when I turn on Toolbar Text, it shows up about 100 or 200 pixels down.
