Help Button in wrong location

Feedback Case Number: 70092

Help button does not display in the correct location. You draw the button on your layout and it appears in a different place on the runtime window. Where depends upon the version of Xojo you are running.

To get this add a button and set the Mac Button Style to Help.

If you are using this and fine it annoying please sign on to the bug.

The Help Style button hasn’t been drawn correctly for a looonnnnnnggggg time.

You either shift it in the IDE, use declares to shift it, or use declares to convert the button style at run time.

Yes, I’m able to work around the issue to an extent, but the point of the bug report is to get things fixed,

Yep, I just discovered this annoying behavior today.
Besides sliders’ similar wrong positioning in more recent versions (as I pointed out a couple of days ago), the wrong positioning also of the Help button adds to my decision to stay put at 2021r2.1. Or to add in 2021.r2.1:
#if TargetMacOS
#if XojoVersion > 2021.021 = - 5
me.left = me.left - 6
