Multiple (hidden) Windows
« on: May 14, 2013, 02:54:47 pm »
I do a fair amount of window management (splitting, zooming, restoring, etc) during the course of a day.  I always seem to get into a spot where there are more windows than are shown and switching between them pops hidden/covered windows into view and is really confusing.  If I just do simple controlled tests I can't seem to reproduce the problem, but it happens all the time.  I end up having to go into the Menu/Window/Windows... dialog and closing all but one to start over.

I'm running V17.0.3. 

I have messed with the 'Smart next windows style' setting, but can't seem to get it right.  It's currently set to 'no window reordering'.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Scott

You may want to switch from "One file per window" mode to "Multiple files share window".  This might help you manage the number of windows you are working with better.  Tools > Options > Editing > Editor Windows.  Also, take a look at the v18 beta.  The new document tabs interface might help you out also.
