variable hover

When debugging, the ability to hover over a variable in the edit window and see its value is very useful. However if that variable is an object with many properties, and we click the triangle to expand the list of properties, the list is often longer than the height of the screen but *without the ability to scroll*, so it is often impossible to see the property that you are interested in. 

The work around, which is quite annoying and breaks your flow, is to copy that variable into the watch window, which does scroll when expanded.

Problem is that XS for some reason wrongly detects your screen size and makes window bigger(higher) then screen hence it doesn't offer scrolling...
Do you maybe use 2 monitors? What are sizes of monitors?

Yes I have 2 monitors, a 1920x1080 arranged above my MacBook Pro Retina screen. XS was on the top monitor at the time. I just tried moving XS to my bottom monitor, and yes, the scrollbar appeared and I was able to scroll. When I moved it back to the top monitor, the reported issue occurred :)

Marking confirmed based on comment #1 and confirmation of multiple monitors and the attachment.
