Dangerous UX in Script Workspace (windows)

Hello all,

 

I LOVE the new script workspace ... but I have just discovered an extremely negative "side effect" of the new layout of the space.

 

I like the huge run + debug buttons -particularly, that you no longer have to rely on the SHIFT key (which is often not correctly transmitted across the ether to remote computers)

HOWEVER, there is a HUGE problem in the positioning of the Run button - on Windows - and particularly when working on a remote computer:

 

The run button is exactly behind the edit menu !

.... if you are using the edit menu, and try to click on a menu entry just as it disappears, you end up RUNNING the script instead of copy/pasting selected script steps.
