We could also resize the editor proportionally to fit inside the screen. Not sure if it's worth it though, since that means even less real estate..

Attaching before and after screenshot of the change regarding the display window position - please let me know if you have any other ideas for the exact coordinates.

Nudge display window below editor's stop button
This only happens if the limited screen dimensions make the display window get positioned on top of the editor. Make it so the stop button is accessible at any time.

@jamesjgrady do you have a preference for where the sketch window pops up relative to the editor window? I agree with @gohai that we should make sure it's not covering the play/stop buttons, but a more considered placement would be best. (This is only for cases where the sketch window doesn't fit to the left of the editor window.)

@benfry I'd recommend the editor takes up the left half of the small screen and the canvas pops up on the right hand so not to cover the editor at all. I'm not sure if you have that kind of control?

Nope. The question is more like “when the editor covers the whole screen, where should the sketch show up, relative to the editor?”

(We do have the display window's dimensions, so centering, centering-unless-window-bar-is-offscreen, etc. would be very feasible.)

@benfry ok, then I'd say place it in the center. It's going to depend on the size you make your sketch so that's why I place it close to the top but not covering the other title bar.
