Thanks for the tip--that's really a good way to get a feel for how things behave. 

For anyone else interested in this thread, I'll also pass on a couple of pages I found helpful:

Hello Michael,

the inner Morph must have its childLayout horizontalResizing set to
#spaceFill. same with verticalResizing.

I never know this when I need it, so I take a rectangle and an
EllipseMorph from the object catalog, put the ellipse inside the
rectangle (red halo, embed into) and then I play with both Morphs
layout options.

Don't forget to pin both Morphs Menus to the screen.
