I raised the second monitor, then adjusted the arrangement in Mac OSX prefs. It changed everything

I hide to fiddle with

set the  topleft of stack "revMenuBar"  to 0,22
save stack "revMenuBar"

put locations didn’t stick on reboot....

so I wiped ~/Library/RunRev/##preferencesA##

reboot, then it change

We should not need to wipe the preferences just to set up for new  a monitor arrangement

Definitely could use a command for this

    I have a development menu which has, among other things a command that simply sets the loc of the top stack to the screenloc. Centers the stack in the monitor. 
    
    I also have found it necessary to record the rect and loc of the stack on close so I can restore it on open.
