[OS X TeX] TeXShop with two screens

I suspect that a new feature of TeXShop is “interferring” with your two screen choices, and
by a little experimenting you can solve the problem.

A couple of versions back I tried to help people with portables attaches to large screens
by providing TWO settings of the default size and location of the pdf and source windows:
the regular one when using the large screen, and the second one when traveling with only
a small screen.

This code uses the first setting if the main screen is large enough to contain the windows,
and otherwise uses the second setting. Both settings are set via menu items:

	Set Source Position
	Set Source Position for Portable

If you have two big screens, but don’t travel, trying making both selections the same value,
so the code doesn’t get confused.

No guarantees. Please write if this fails and then I’ll look into it in detail.
