Example Image

**Overview:**

   See attached image for a better example of what can happen. 

   The autocomplete / warning / error / suggestion dialogs arrange in an unpleasant way where it can cover what you are typing and can't see what is happening. 

**Actual Results:**

   Theses windows cover what the user is doing.

**Expected Results:**

   Arrange them in a way that is not invasive to the user.

**Build Date & Platform:**

   XS 5.2 on Mac

It seems that this has been fixed in the VS for Mac 7.1 d15-3 build. See attached screenshot as the windows do not seem to cover the caret.
