Sweet, good to know. Most of the details came from Pd-extended really.

I initially added vertical padding to things but walked that back as it doesn't seem to be needed based on the screenshots coming in. Another aspect is that this fixes horz layout issues so probably shouldn't bring in too many new vert layout issues :)

I've also moved on to making zoom work overall, especially with the iem guis. At this point, I should probably split that off into a separate GitHub branch, but so far it's in that same PR.
