      Description

      First time using quick designer.

      Dropped a "rectangle" into "window"
      changed color to red
      ran the "run" command. did not see the box.
      looked at the source - it had negative coordinates (why?)
      Dropped a second rectangle into window.
      tried playing with anchoring.

      Come to find out the location of the window is
      being displayed in the middle of the forms editor
      that is why the negative coordinated.
      tried adding "x" and "y" to window.

      no real change. then used scroll bar to search for
      window. Found it in the middle of the forms editor.

      What is going on? why is it there? I would expect
      that the forms area (upper left corner) would have
      coordinates (0.0) and the window would be anchored
      to that location. Instead, the coordinates (0,0) are in
      the middle of the forms editor panel.

      How can I change this?
