to be quite far apart. Also, what was strange was that just because

I want to configure a new Mac mini running 10.13.2 for Android development.

Not to go into detail, but I have not seen any problems using two monitors with

MS Excel, Transmit etc etc. Maybe I’m just lucky, but it’s certainly LC that’s
giving me the biggest headache at the moment. Good tip

The "Title" in stack properties is only seen in the IDE and desktop apps. On
Mobile this is never displayed. You could leave it defaulted to the stack name.
I usually make it nice to read and identify so the title bars in the IDE are
easy on the eyes.
The "Standalone Name" is the name of the .app or the .apk(Android) files AND
the sequential folder names created in the build folder.
The "Display Name"(iOS) and "Label"(Android) is just the the text under the app
icon on the device.
What really makes an app unique on a device is

Well, in Stack Properties, one is given the opportunity to provide a title.
Otherwise the title becomes the name of the stack. Are you saying this title of
the stack is one of the subject items? If so, which one? And, would that one
supersede any title I might have given my stack in Stack
I don't think this is particularly complicated;
it is rather like the fact that you can have a standalone on a desktop
system called something (e.g. "XXX")
but when the standalone opens it can have something else on its title
bar (e.g. "Oh, you expected XXX").

IIRC, the engine passes 'proper urls' straight through to the OS framework - so
if the URL plays in a browser then it should probably work in the engine.
If it doesn't, but does in a browser then you could try using a browser widget
instead of a player?

I wonder if it is the mix between retina and non-retina screens which is
causing the problem.
I notice Mattias mentioned he couldn't reproduce with two retina screens, but
both you and graham have a mixed setup?
P.S. There's clearly a problem here in the engine if hit
