Wrong location of Color Selection Menu

Describe the bug

When I try to format part of a text inside a block, the color selection menu opens up at the upper left corner of the document instead of right bellow the Text Formatting Toolbar. If the page is long enough, the menu could even be completely hidden out of view.

To Reproduce

Steps to reproduce the behaviour:

    1. Open a document
    1. Select part of some text inside a block
    1. When the Text Formatting Toolbar shows up, click on the icon to change the text color or background color
    1. The Color Selection Menu shows up at the upper-left corner of the document
    1. Dismiss the menu and repeat the selection of text and clicking on the color icon (steps 2 and 3)
    1. Now the Color Selection Menu shows up just bellow the Text Formatting Toolbar.
    1. Edit some text to trigger the strange behaviour again. It may take a couple tries

Expected behavior

The Color Selection Menu should always appear right bellow the Text Formatting Toolbar

System Information:

  • OS: Windows 8.1
  • Anytype Version: e.g. 0.19.0

@div3xi, have you been able to reproduce the related behavior?

Encountered the same issue on Linux when I first used anytype today. However, it seems very inconsistent - sometimes the menu appears in the right spot, sometimes it just appears on the top-left corner of the page (not the window, so sometimes nothing at all happens!)
