I've attached a picture to illustrate the problem.

I have 2 detached tabs on my 2nd monitor and they overlap.

But when I click on one of them to bring it to the foreground, the other one is coming to the foreground.

Can you reproduce this with a default config? Does it matter if both files are on your other monitor?

It does happen with a default config.

I have 2 monitors.

When I originally reported the issue:

SE main window: monitor 1
file1: monitor 2
file2: monitor 2

If I then try:

SE main window: monitor 2
file1: monitor 1
file2: monitor 1

and it does reproduce there too.

When I try with all 3 windows on monitor #1.

When I click on file#1, #2 came to the foreground, main SE behind it, and #1 is unseen because main SE is maximized.

I then click on main SE window and then I see, file2: foreground, file1: middle, main SE: background

clicked file1 again, different behavior, file1 temporarily disappeared but then: file2: foreground, file1: middle, main SE: background

Then I click on file2 and file2 stays in foreground.

Another thing to note, in the way I originally reported, main: #1, file1/2 monitor #2, if I click on file#1 the cursor is in file1 but file2 is in the foreground obscuring file 1.

This is on Linux but I am controlling it from a Windows 10 machine.

I am not using VNC I am using FastX as my X server: https://www.starnet.com/fastx/

When I try it with VNC, expand my VNC window to 3810x1017 to span across (not fully) the 2 monitors, I do NOT have the issue with a clean config.

So seems like something to do with FastX and SlickEdit interaction?

Note that my trials with a clean config used hotfix 6 on 25.0.1.

Did you test with a clean config using FastX? That wasn't clear to me.

Do you have any custom macros loaded? You should unload those so we can rule those out.

I did test with FastX and clean config, had the issue.

When I tested VNC with clean config, did not have the issue.

I don't think there were any macros loaded when I used the clean config.

I don't know how I misread your first line  ;D

Your are right then, there is something going on with FastX and SlickEdit.
