In the prefs140.xml file, here is the section to look for:

		<context name="PropertiesPalette">
			<attribute key="height" value="747"/>
			<attribute key="left" value="1203"/>
			<attribute key="top" value="79"/>
			<attribute key="visible" value="1"/>
			<attribute key="width" value="289"/>

"left" and "top" are the two variables to look at, to make sure you're
on the screen.


and prefs150.xml has this:

		<context name="PropertiesPalette">
			<attribute key="area" value="0"/>
			<attribute key="floating" value="1"/>
			<attribute key="height" value="799"/>
			<attribute key="left" value="995"/>
			<attribute key="top" value="38"/>
			<attribute key="visible" value="1"/>
			<attribute key="width" value="310"/>
