A couple of things. The developer is not even required to build a standalone, and presumably it would be easier to strip out or hide the IDE of LiveCodeLight. Otherwise, either way is good. Roger > On Mar 27, 2021, at 10:36 AM, Richmond via use-livecode > wrote: > > Maybe I'm missing

I have a MBP with an external monitor. Does anybody know how to force LC to open on the internal display and not the external? It suddenly switched on me and I can’t figure out why or how to control it. BTW, the external monitor is arranged to be above the MBP display. Thanks, Roger
