    MC 2022.4 weird window behavior – not coming to front

    Trying to understand if this is a bug or some sort of "feature".  Windows in MC 2022.4 aren't coming to the front when I click on them.  It doesn't seem consistent, but mostly it seems like they don't.

    I mean I click on a window, or cycle through in standard Mac fashion (command-`), and the window becomes active.  I can move the window.  But it remains below the other windows.

    Minimizing the window to the dock and then clicking it open again will bring it to the front.

    Changing to another app and back to MC might also remedy the issue.

    ALSO - it seems like things like the Find Window react differently.  I got other windows to come to the front, but not the Find Window.  Then later it does come to the front.

    Could this be something amiss with MC & MACOS Monterey?

    I've had this happen, too, but haven't been able to figure out a pattern.

    It is almost the "normal" state of affairs for me. 

     

    Switching to finder (hiding MC) and back might help remedy –– I'm still trying to figure it out.

    To add to the information about this problem it can be illustrated when I pull away the background thing (what is that?) that hides the finder and other apps so MC works like a normal app again (i.e. I can "see behind" it).

    When I do that and click on another app window or finder window, the window becomes active but it does not come forward above Avid.  I have to click again to have it come forward.

    This smells like it might be a "feature".  Because of the interface design of having that background thing, maybe the programmers felt it would be useful to move other app windows without popping them forward?

    What the heck do I call the background thing?  I just hide it under my right monitor's source/record interface so I don't have to bother with it. 

    What is the purpose of it?  Just to black out all other information from the OS/apps?
